    I have been working at Astute Business Solutions as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good pay, this is a good place for individuals with significant experience, an ability to learn quickly, good boundaries, and excellent work ethic and communication skills.

    Cons

    You will only thrive at this company if you work hard and can deliver results. If you are into showing up and doing nothing useful, don't expect to last long here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for being transparent and clear about expectations and for appreciating work well done. Thank you for being flexible and enjoyable to work with. I would suggest that management be all on the same page instead of providing sometimes conflicting direction. And don't get stuck on small projects being perfect when there is so much to accomplish. Trust in your employees areas of expertise. Please keep in mind that some of your employees are very trustworthy and treat them as such.

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing although it is in Pleasanton, which is nice

    Cons

    This was hands down the strangest company I have ever worked for. They think they're hot stuff, but it's all smoke and mirrors. Arvind's a control freak who treats everyone like they're idiots and Sudhir is the biggest bully around. They did put up a good front for the clients, but again it's all fake. The only thing they're interested in is money, money, money. Screw the employee, screw the customer. There's plenty of excellent companies out there who really do care about their employees and don't play stupid games like holding someone's pay or expense reimbursements or making unrealistic demands and then blaming you when things don't magically happen. Life's too short to work for a company like Astute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I wouldn't be surprised if they're eventually sued, either by an employee or by a client.

    Pros

    none what so ever. Oh there is water dispenser in the office and its free.

    Cons

    It is a cheap company run by bait and switch operation. They lure you with GC and H1 stuff and once you are in they will mistreat and abuse to the maximum. Every week new recruiters join as the someone leaves because they did not "satisfy" the owner's Sudhir & Arvind, if you know what I mean. Zero ethics. Even immigration is getting watchful on this company as labor petitions are getting rejected. They will hold your pay after you leave. Please do not work for these idiots and DO NOT believe them if they lure with any immigration benefits. You will never get any benefits from this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop you abuse, treat woman with respect. You are very close to a lawsuit and I can see it coming soon.

    Pros

    no pros at all, as a consulting firm they cannot offer anything that can be called a pro

    Cons

    its basically just another consultancy that can do anything to rip you off. if you work on h1 with them, rest assured you will be exploited to the core.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sell the company to people who know how to do business
