    Pros

    good benefits as a contractor

    Cons

    They only work with project managers and engineer/IT people. If you ask them to post you for a creative job, you're sunk. They only see you as your last position.

    Advice to Management

    It is difficult enough to find a job, this company doesn't have any wishes to do anything more than they have to in placing you for your next job.

    Pros

    Good salary. Good and honest HR.

    Cons

    You are forced to take PTO if it's a client holiday but not collabera holiday ! You don't get clear policy documents from employer, when i asked for it, got a snippet in email from the HR. Forget about employee care completely even if you are salaried employee. They gave me in writing about filing Immigration for me during job offer and when followed up for 3 months, ultimately got a one liner email that they can't do it. When clients complaint, u get to hear it a lot, but, forget about appreciation for good work. Employee Relationship person onsite ! Should be called client relationship person who only takes are of grief from client and not from employee.

    Advice to Management

    It'll be nice to have the policies and benefits mentioned more clearly. And have some transparency in the company atleast with your employees.

    Pros

    It's good for fresh college graduate.

    Cons

    Very fussy. Insurance premium is like $200 a month. Outrageous...Don't expect any benefit from this company. I and my wife were planning for a baby but insurance for both of us was estimated to be $700 a month so we thought of changing a company soon and than plan for the baby.. Yes, $700...Isn't it crazy?

    Pros

    Good management support. Strong client base. Old company in the staffing industry. Good Cash flow and hence no worries of they going bankrupt.

    Cons

    Limited internal growth oppurtunities. Not very good benefits plan. No work-life balance support - its all about work 24/7. Heavy offshore oriented - with every single job done by people in countries like India.

    Advice to Management

    People is everything. They must understand that if people work 24/7 - the current business can be doubled, however people have life outside work.
