A perfect company to stay away from!

Principal Architect (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsFor young and inexperienced professionals it's a great chance to see the US. CTS got the low-value staff augmentation game nailed!

ConsI am a non-Indian, US-based consulting executive with an Ivy League advanced degree and over 17 years of professional experience. CTS lured me with empty promises of consulting excellence from a Big-4 competitor over 3 years ago.
There is no way to be promoted unless you are a yes-man on the leash tied to an account manager. I am currently on a layoff list because I refuse to relocated on a whim of inexperienced, short-sighted and self-serving account managers and insist on travelling to client engagements. CTS will not pay expenses for employee travel and will not bill clients for expenses since expense amounts impact their PERCEIVED profitability!
This is a joke of a company. If you are an experienced professional - stay away from CTS!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementStart listening to advice of those in your company who have been around the block a few times and know how to build and run a successful consultancy... or stop pretending that you are one!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
