    I worked at IT Trailblazers as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    After thinking and thinking I cannot really come up with anything that stands out as a PRO regarding IT Trailblazers.

    Cons

    Geared for offering ground-floor pay and going as low with pay and benefits as they can get away with. The biggest con is their major disorganization. I worked in Redmond, WA. and they are headquartered in New Jersey. From day one they messed up my pay and I had to wait a month past by pay-date to get my first pay. Then I never had one point of contact. Every time I had a question, I had to interface with a different person who knew nothing about my history with them. I would get calls from one person telling me one thing to resolve an issue and an email from another person telling me to do something opposite. They didn't know what was going on and didn't seem able to sort it out. The client told me they had similar organization problems dealing with them. When I left, I said good riddance!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized. Assign one point-of-contact person for a contractor who actually knows what is going on. Don't be so obvious about low-balling every pay discussion.

    Pros

    None. Owners are taking advantage of consultants by keeping there paychecks as long as possible.

    Cons

    - very unprofessionally handling all communications with project employees
    - constantly late on payments
    - refuse pay to consultants unless court case opened

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See you in court.

    I worked at IT Trailblazers as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I got hired for a position that matched my background and I thought would be an inroad for more contracts like it.

    Cons

    Pay rate was rock bottom. To add insult to injury, every payday was messed up since for some reason they could never coordinate the procedures and how and when to account for my hours with Tata Consultancy Services. TCS went overboard to try to accommodate them and couldn't understand why of all the agencies they worked with, ITTB could never figure things out. The first month I didn't get paid and had to wait to the end of the 2nd month (after many emails and phone calls) to finally get my first check. Of course, that only confused them for the second month, which compounded for the rest of my assignment, I was constantly receiving emails and phone calls from literally 20 different people from ITTB, each of whom didn't know the other one was contacting me or what was said. The full details of the continuing pay confusion are too involved to relate here, suffice to say I would warn any contractor that deals with ITTB to be prepared for ongoing confusion and cluelessness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since their office is in New Jersey and I was on the other side of the country, at least they could assign a single point of contact to handle each contractor. Hopefully, this would reduce the utter confusion. If that is not possible, then train staff to coordinate their response. Even when I cc'd all twenty people who had contacted me on emails, they still couldn't get on the same page with each other.
