    I worked at Calian Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They embed some of their contractors with some very interesting clients. Where I worked, the client treated us as part of the team. I appreciated working fixed hours and not having to worry about bringing work home.

    Cons

    Do not expect Calian to invest in your professional development or in your advancement. The company's interest is driven by profit margin and shareholder happiness. You will be in a fixed role for the duration of your contract. Do not expect Calian to reward initiative. The client probably will before Calian ever does.

    Advice to Management

    Start investing in your employees to improve their capacity for future contract bids. If you want to move forward, you have to actually become "thought leaders" by action. It's more than just buzz words.
