    I have been working at Concept Software & Services full-time

    Pros

    The stipend that they give you. Its not much but it's better than the rest of the company

    Cons

    The training is not worth it. It isn't FAST PACED. They have outsources overseas workers train you via skype, they use google and use w3schools( a joke) and then you have to pay them back regardless. You have to pay them for the training in the end but they don't tell you until you actually move here. Long story short, they charge you for using google. Half the time, the workers correct the instructor because all the instructor did was copy and paste because they can't code themselves. In some cases listening in to an overseas call center. Plus what they teach you is similar to a entry high school computer class and then try to contract you out to good paying companies by having you lie on your resume. Don't believe them because even if your "salary is high" they take more than half of your paycheck as their FEE for training. You won't be a real programmer coming out of here. They just feed you questions to help you lie on a job interview and once you get hired, that's all on you. Either way, you still owe them money for training. Its nothing but greed. It would be ok if you had professional in house trainers but they have their overseas people read from material that they stole from the internet. The last thing is that they lie about the companies they have contact with. In reality most of the people that did find jobs found them on their own because this company is unreliable. So in the end, you end up finding a job yourself, training yourself and owing them money because they force you to sign a contract before showing you the actual training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find real trainers if you want to make your company successful. Stop being disingenuous to potential workers saying that you're giving them a job when in reality you are just having another service do it for you and you take over 60% of their paycheck. Also stop the call center "trainers". Be professional, not cheap.

    I worked at Concept Software & Services as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    The only good thing, if one, is the training. They will provide different technologies to you, but the overall training is not that good.

    Cons

    The 18-month contract is a piece of crap (always trying to modify it & make attempts for you to sign it), they will "SELL" you a fairy tail dream about how they have all these clients (a LIE) and how much money they've been bringing into the company (yeah, by ripping off their own workers one by one once they are placed on a job). They always say that they don't treat this as a vocational school whatsoever(well it definitely don't feel like a corporate world environment ). Oh Yeah, they always say that they will support you regardless (a bunch of backstabbers, smiling in your face). No type of growth in this company as they are so unorganized, promising you that you will be able to work on a bunch of programs onsite (another LIE). They're so many more cons to this company, but I'm done giving them even more spot-light time!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Screw them!!! and if you do decide to take your faith with this company, I will tell you to watch your back at "ALL TIMES!!!"

    I have been working at Concept Software & Services as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I joined Concept with reference of one of my Friend who's already a CSS Employee. When 1st time I came to US I was totally new about US Geography & Market, the management systems of CSS are very cooperative they guide and placed me on project as per their commitment in 3 to 4 Weeks.

    CSS people work on their commitment, getting project and H1 transfer was very smooth. The CEO of this Company Mr. Ravindra Bhave is very supportive. They have very good Recruitment and marketing team.
    the best part of my experience is, I did not invested a single amount from my pocket.

    They are plenty of people working with me @ Concept Software, they are extremely professional and stick to work ethics which are guided by several core values. Jobs in Concept are trending and highly beneficial.

    Cons

    talking with Americans is difficult, i believe they should have a translator but yes i know that is my problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep it up

    I worked at Concept Software & Services (more than a year)

    Pros

    Obviously the only thing good about the company is the training they provide within Java, .ASP.

    Cons

    Working here is an 18 month contract that they will try to push on you. If you want to break that contract it is $8000 dollars. Yes, $8000. So you are stuck with them for 1 year and 6 months. The first six months you are getting paid $600 bucks. My initial thought was....are you serious? No one can possibly survive off $600 bucks for 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop paying training for $600! Raise it to $900 or $1000 if you want recent grads to come to your program!

    Also Concept-Software, quit lying about your company with these fake "good" reviews! You can't trick anyone! We know you're trying to recruit new people and get them into a long binding contract based on the reviews on glassdoor!
