    I worked at CMC full-time

    Pros

    Easy job, not very demanding. You won't have to think about it after work hours. Payment goes accordingly with tasks required. It is a pretty good job if you are planning to do something else in the near future.

    Cons

    There is no career advancement. Managers are from India only, all technical staff with poor management skills. Company structure is completely flat.

    Pros

    Flexibility in scheduling. Close to home. I usually feel supported by co workers duringy shift.

    Cons

    Some co workers are clique.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is not very understanding when personal issues arise at home. As a single parent I have responsibilities to my children.
    Management totally has favorites, and will support them at the drop of a hat. Giving them the night off for a party. Where as if not in the "in group" and you have a family emergency, you're out of luck.

    You're Too Good For This Place, Keep Looking

    I have been working at CMC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Casual dress
    - 8 hours a day, and that's it
    - Co-workers are nice and friendly (most of them), and they'll give you tips for your job search since they're looking, too
    - Nice location (near 360 and MoPac, lots of shopping centres nearby)
    - Food trucks because Google is across the way *hint hint* and orders them in

    Cons

    - Management is comprised of IT-only guys who still don't know anything about the projects they manage, and they see people as tools rather than human beings entitled to proper compensation
    - The bulk of responsibility is passed on to the team leads who don't make all that much more money than normal team members
    - One of the managers seems to have issues with female employees (passive-aggression, hostility)
    - Hardly any room for growth (team lead is the highest role one can achieve) since the company is structured like a temp agency. This is probably ideal if you have no motivation in life and don't care about having a decent job that can afford you nice things (a good chunk of people still work second jobs to make ends meet)
    - No overtime available, which is good for work-life balance but bad for employees who aren't paid enough
    - No in-house HR rep so harassment is an issue that's overlooked
    - They hire college graduates only but can't seem to get quality people anyway. They'll even take University of Phoenix graduates (really?)
    - No sick days, and vacation accrues at a rate of about 3 hours a month, so by December 31st, you get five. whole. days. off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just leave. Go home. The client's representatives don't like you, and the employees don't like you. You're so concerned with stats that you fail to understand the projects you should be managing. Understand there are nuances and that people are not automated machines. Listen to the employees. They're the ones that are keeping you employed. Understand that American work culture is not the same as in India, and ADAPT. But it's probably a better idea if you just go away.
