    High-end agency delivers

    Project Management (Current Employee) Campbell, CA

    ProsThey are known in Silicon Valley to provide high-end talent. They provide some benefits and are generally available to discuss and resolve contract work challenges. They provide some training opportunities.

    ConsThey weren't able to place me for over a year, my skill set is a bit out of the ordinary.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Stay Away.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosreally, none. I've worked through several consulting agencies and have had a terrible experience with this one.

    ConsThey take waaaay too much of your pay. And give you nothing in return. Seriously--nothing. They do not pay on time. When you complain, they terminate your contract without notice. Unfortunately for them, they burn the bridge with the client too--I know my client will never hire them again. They need to understand the consultant is your bread and butter--not the company the client serves--and treat them better. Pay more, pay regularly. Offer REAL benefits for the 25-30% cut of pay you take from consultants. Reward them for finding their own work! They aren't going to be around for long in my opinion. These types of agencies are being consolidated and have no real business model except to use the consultant to make a margin. Short sighted, and not very nice.

    Find a more caring, loyal and generous boutique consulting co to work with.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBrand name at certain accounts.

    ConsTop exec is not ideal. Poor leadership. Self-absorbed.
    Known for low-pay to contractors.
    Known for high margin to clients.
    Not loyal to network /impersonal -treat you like a #.
    Understaffed.
    poor customer service
    bottom-line mentality.
    Golden rule ignored!

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce leader's ego.
    Be more generous/share in the profits.
    Hire more diversely.
    Realize you are a small boutique/niche agency-not more!
    Treat employees and consultants better.
    Bad rap on the street-both with candidates, former contractors and prospects!
