Pros

The only real upside is the company leaves you alone for the most part when you are working on site with a contract.

Cons

Way too much middle management.
They will have what feels like 5 bosses all doing the same job.
No profit sharing either which is interesting. Only because the individuals working on site are who give the company a good name and yet no bonuses are passed down to the ones doing the real work.
Another important note...through 2011 every couple weeks you would get an email about some other senior individual leaving the company...that's never a good sign when the senior guys start taking off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of the ones working on site at your contracts.
Wouldn't hurt to lean out your management as well. You don't need 5 people doing the same job. Pick the one that is most capable and put some trust in them.

    Pros

    Fellow workers are great, knowledgable, and easy to work with. Some individuals like to be ghosts and only show up every few days but most are reliable and punctual and very professional and highly competent.

    Cons

    Poor interaction with management, little leadership from same and a sense of indecision and apathy from management. People routinely work without signed contracts or any information about extensions of contracts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People that actually perform the work for clients are the ones that make or break your company. It would be wise to listen to their concerns and assist them and provide direction when needed or those smae people will seek employment elsewhere. Getting honest feedback from those on the frontlines should not be something you are afraid of because being proactive is always preferrable, and more professional than constantly being reactive.
