    I worked at Aricent as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not to much to say about this contracting company. It was a short lived opportunity through them and they were quick to have me start.

    Cons

    Difficult to keep up with the Payroll for them. Which is why I guess the company I was contracted for deiced not to use them after the last fiscal year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to keep the aggressive nature down for competing to keep jobs. I had a really difficult time working and finding suitable training due to the foreign contractors competing for positions. Which was a huge factor in this company having to lay me and more off.

    Pros

    Interesting pipeline overseas telecom companies

    Cons

    Be careful about applying for full time positions now, going through layoffs in November 2012; be sure to discuss which business unit you would be in
