    Pros

    The learning opportunities are endless

    Cons

    Sometimes difficult to find information when project is done at more than one site

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    During Resource Action the practice of not bumping among groups would be good if amended.

    Those who are being sponsored with less experience are being kept over those who are American citizens or with green cards with more experience.

    Obama suggesting Americans who are educated will give them job opportunities won't work if jobs are still being given to those who need sponsorship with less experience simply because their salary may be less. Long run it will hurt the economy, and hurt the company as well as other companies in the US. Before assuming Americans won't work for a lower salary it would be good if they were at least offered that option.

    Also cutbacks were done in small sizes to avoid giving notice required by law. It affects the company image.

    Pros

    Working from home is good. There is allot of support and information on the portal for you to be successful but you need to know how to find it.

    Cons

    Although the company supports a work/life balance it is more of a work life integration. Expect to work long hours and do allot of travel. The resource assignment managers are all about meeting their numbers, and have no respect for their consultants as individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the resource assignment managers. I will do fine on my own.
