Pros

Pays on time.
Direct Deposit.
Can be a decent place to work if you are part of the in crowd.
Some offices are well managed (some are not).
Provides required software and hardware to get the job done.
Performs a thorough criminal, drug, professional and educational background check on US and Canadian citizens, however, no such check done for individuals raised in other countries. So, an American with a 1.5 GPA cannot lie about it. However, a guy who failed Computer Science 5 times in India can easily hide it.

Cons

I worked on several projects. A few of them were great, had qualified people. A few were unbearable, loaded with lazy people who all claim to be management. The managers who have been working for a long time have their own closed circle and they are only concerned about keeping their jobs alive. They are not looking out for the company's best interest. Every year, they promote each other only. Too much internal politics. You have to be a part of the in crowd to have a decent work condition. CEO is too busy acquiring other companies, not focusing on improving lives of workers already on board. Got no raises. Had to stay up many nights to finish the work.

Advice to Management

What goes around comes around. Take care of the regular consultants.
