Pros

You will get paid. You will be insured. You will be able to travel to client sites.

Cons

This company is essentially a temp agency. They fill positions for large corporations (Dell, EMC, VMware, and Northrop). Most of their contracts can be canceled with little notice leaving employees without a job if they cannot find a new position. There is also a 0% bench time policy. If your job ends, your employment will be terminated. The business was thriving until it was sold to BRCD in 2008 and then started to crumble with the same management team that was in place. Management was disengaged after the sale to Brocade and never made any attempts to grow the business causing salary and hiring freezes for several years.

Pay and insurance benefits are below industry standards.
401K benefits - not worth mentioning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please stop listening to the lady in charge. Implement annual employment reviews and start paying attention to employee needs to perform and complete tasks.

    Pros

    Honestly, beause you have no other options. Do get paid on time.

    Cons

    Lets start from day one. You are hearded on a conf call, given your computer and told to speak to your manager immediately. You are billable and you have no bench time. Training will always be available if it is free, done on your time and you can make up for the lost billable hours later. When you travel you will find your stipends to be coach class if your lucky and you find they control the travel very tightly. You will learn quickly that $46 per day in food in NYC does not go far. Communication from the managers is poor. Basically, take it or leave it. H-1B visas folks are favorites because they work cheap and do not speak up. Comes down to just do it because James or Kevin will be upset with someone challenging their authority.

    Would be nice if Brocade Services was sent back to where it belongs..
