    I worked at Risetime full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Wide variety of interesting projects. Performance is recognized and appreciated. Fairly laid-back corporate culture. Friendly people and accessible management. Nice office.

    Cons

    Projects are short-term, so there's not much security. Consultants can end up faced with difficult decisions - if an engagement requires a long commute and there's no other engagement for a particular employee- guess what...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't know. It's a tough business. Find a way to communicate to potential clients that Risetime represents a big step up from run-of-the-mill staffing firms.

    Unethical and ruthless - once work has dried up, be prepared to be dismissed

    I worked at Risetime full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is okay, they bring in snacks on Fridays.

    Cons

    Once no work for you, you are done. Location is bad - share floor with ruffians. They act like work that was outsourced was done in house. I won't elaborate on their ethical lapses and unethical practices, but it is shameful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with people from the get-go.
