    I worked at Genesis10 full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As in any company, it depends on who you are working with. My experience with the NY staff of Genesis10 was nothing but pleasant. They seemed to know what they're talking about, frequently explaining processes and timeframes in order to manage expectations.

    Cons

    Benefits are not that great.

    Former Contractor - Technical Project Manager in Kansas City, MO

    I worked at Genesis10 as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They pay you every two weeks. The support staff at the delivery center are nice, but they are the upper managements strong arms. I don't think they enjoy this role but it is their job.

    Cons

    All good things come to an end....that goes for any "perks" we had at Gen10, like the option to purchase Short Term Disability, steady increase in cost of benefits and decrease in what benefits were offered, ability to work off site, Zero possibility for a pay raise. Low pay, minimal time off, no raises at all no matter how long your tenure. Unlike most contracting firms that are happy if the client is happy, this one micromanages every decision you make. Even though 95% of the banks IT employees and contractors could work remotely, Gen10 would not allow it and would take attendance daily. We used to receive cookies and a note on our birthdays, now you don't even get an email.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees market value (ie - increase pay), reward employees with long tenures, loosing up on the work remote policy. A reminder, the employees are making the company lots of money, occasionally give them recognition.

    I have been working at Genesis10 as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good administration, time reporting, etc. Met payroll on time. Negotiated a good rate for me.

    Cons

    Did not find another contract or contribute to extending the initial contract. They did not contact the client near the end of the initial contract period to arrange for an extension. Neither did they contact me to advise me of the apparent end of the contract. I found another contract as the termination date approached, only to learn that the client actually wanted to keep me longer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in better communication with resources already under contract and build longer term relationships with clients.

    Pros

    It's a job. A lot of pressure because of their total lack of support for their employees with respect to the clients.

    Cons

    A lot of pressure because of their total lack of support for their employees with respect to the clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Back your employees. Reduce employee churn. More paid days off to reduce burnout

    Former Employee - Associate Consultant in Minneapolis, MN

    I worked at Genesis10 full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Decent pay
    - People are nice
    - Training was good
    - Company is very communicative

    Cons

    IT recruiting is inherently a bit of a dog-eats-dog world. That's fine. However, discouraging your employees from using the benefits you provide is not fine. Also, I was dissatisfied with my position and, as is required in my contract, gave 10 days' notice. They terminated me effective the day of my resignation. This is an awful, dishonest way to run a business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your associates with respect.

    Don't care whether you fit or not; don't bother to check up with you and when you need something your a stranger.
