    I have been working at Talascend full-time

    Pros

    Quick onboarding process. Great response from recruiters during communication.

    Cons

    Come across as shady at times. Very open when discussing salary at the beginning, but clear information regarding vacation and benefits is not given until after employment offer has been accepted. Lesson Learned! Three weeks vacation agreed to verbally, but offer packet simply says "Vacation Policy for Hourly Deployed Employees" which I later found out meant they include 8 vacation hours following a 260 straight time hours worked.
    Bottom line, ask questions, and get it in writing!

    Benefits very expensive.

    Pros

    Company culture is one of empowerment. CEO is truly one of the most kind, genuine people you will ever meet. He truly cares about all of his employees. He is always available to listen. Always room for growth and advancement, you can create your own destiny.

    Cons

    Cost of benefits is a little high, but year on year all companies are experiencing the increased cost of healthcare in the US.
