Pros

It was a job during economic downturn in the economy. Due to active participation in various minority councils, this company managed to get on numerous vendor lists. Great place for people on immigration visas to work because company is very tuned in to this community and will bend over backwards to provide sponsorship and good jobs to the most talented players in this market.

Cons

As soon as the economy turned, employees baled in droves. Lots of nepotism, catering to both direct family members and family members of close friends, at the expense of employees who aren't Indian or Hindu. Pay is really low. Company does not put anything into marketing and is virtually unheard of to most consultants being recruited for placement with clients. Once placed, company will forget about you until such time as you are ready to move on to greener pastures,. They don't do anything to earn respect of their consultants who are responsible for the revenues of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and treat everyone fairly. Don't bend the rules for personal gain. Don't belittle your employees or allow others on your staff to do the same. Do invest in your people and your business for the sake of employee morale so your employees can be proud to say where they work.

    Pros

    the recruiters and the support staff is responsive, courteous, and knowledgeable. Leading Edge Systems of Richmond is reasonably well connected around Richmond area.

    Cons

    Relatively low key and low energy mode of operating once the consultant has been placed. They - like all staffing body shops - are interested in 'placing' people and not much more than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Leading Edge Systems of Richmond (or LESR as it is sometimes called) management needs to be more aggressive in building and managing their key accounts
