I worked at Cook Systems International full-time

Pros

I can't think of one positive thing about this company.

Cons

Company has laid off half of their staff the past 6 months. They keep having to borrow money from individuals, investors, and banks. They basically spent all of their time and money into a java training program that failed miserably. Culture has been run into the ground and there is about to be a mass exodus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on what is supposed to be your core business- STAFFING. Treat your producers better--more flexibility, compensation, and benefits.

    Pros

    Cook Systems International's CEO is a visionary. The Company has developed a ground breaking new program to create new Java Developers and high paying jobs for Americans. This program is new and there is nothing like it anywhere. When you combine this program's potential with the expertise the company already has in IT staffing, the organization will change the face of the Information Technology industry. Working here made me feel like I was apart of something big and exciting.

    Cons

    The program is new. It is having some hiccups, but don't most new mom's with infants need to give up some sleep and sanity in the early stages to help them grow? There are some pockets of poor leadership, and the typical office drama associated with them. Generally those individuals are flushed out over time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course, but do take care of the employees who are giving you the best of themselves. Based on the previous review it appears some individuals aren't feeling connected to the company's current trajectory. Negativity is cancerous, it's best to catch it and treat it early.
