Good for experience - but unfair treatment between staff and short term consultants

Short-term Consultant (STC) (Former Employee) Washington, DC

Prosgreat networking, great learning environment, cafeteria is awesome!

Consstaff and short term consultants are like two different castes - short term consultants are used and then replaced in lieu of hiring a staff - many people get frustrated with the system and leave - those that stay usually do because of visa sponsorship

Advice to Senior Managementend the abuse of consultants - if you give advice to the rest of the world on fair practices, you should practice it yourself

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
