    Pros

    Decent benefits, PTO, etc. I was able to work at the client site for many years.

    Cons

    Kept stressing the importance of career growth, but their efforts to help were half-hearted. My management rarely showed its face to my client, and behaved as if they were entitled to have me work there. Also, there was too much focus on useless certifications with no advancement even if you did get them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember your strength is your consultants.

    Pros

    great environment to work. Majority of the management folks are very good to work with.

    Cons

    Compensation review is not fair. You work day and night and you get nothing and lazy ones who really knows how to talk they would get more compensation and promotions. Your brain gets you nowhere rather your mouth gets you promotions!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and know people's skill.
