Pros

Great gigs - when you can get one. Payroll on time and accurate. Your personal representative in HR makes all the difference in how the relationship develops. Make no mistake, this is a body shop - your talent is worthless to them when you are not on a project.

Cons

Ridiculously difficult until you get "wired" in to the process. Long downtime between assignments. Lack of understanding within company of how to pitch consultants to the client: if you have mad skills in A but are fully qualified in B, C and D with better than average competence in E, you will get responses to A.

Advice to Management

Remember the talent you hire is often senior to you. Show some respect to your talent and negotiate business-to-business.

    Pros

    It's good for fresh college graduate.

    Cons

    Very fussy. Insurance premium is like $200 a month. Outrageous...Don't expect any benefit from this company. I and my wife were planning for a baby but insurance for both of us was estimated to be $700 a month so we thought of changing a company soon and than plan for the baby.. Yes, $700...Isn't it crazy?

    Pros

    The good thing was they do your taxes. They did direct deposit on time;
    Manager was Nice;

    Cons

    a lot of things to file.
    The length of the contract usually goes like 3 months, 6 months, 9 months or 1 year maximum.
    There is a 100 days rule, which means once you finish a project, you have to take a 100 days break.
