    I worked at Keane full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Keane's a business process outsourcing company, as such there's considerable opportunity for international contact. While you learn to work with the local people you're on a team with you're interfacing with people halfway around the world and meeting with businesses in the states to match the needs of one with the capabilities of the other. It is not boring work.

    Cons

    Outsourcing does mean travel. If you're not ok with travel you'll have a hard time working for Keane however if you don't mind there are more than enough upsides to outshine any potential downsides.

    I have been working at Keane full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with Fortune 500 Company and gaining the education and experience was a great way to build my resume. lots of opportunity in the organizations.....if they have a stable contract with the company.

    Cons

    Your bosses really have no idea what you are doing, as you and Keane are not allowed to have any performance feedback with the company's management. So, unless you screw something up, and they hear from the company, they think you're doing ok. I had no feedback from anyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider updating those vendor contacts to include having communication on performance with consultants working in this Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    Felt like I was being force fit into assignment because I was available rather that the position was a good match for my skills

    Great transition job after retiring from the U.S. Air Force

    I have been working at Keane full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Highly competent staff and challenging work assignments. Role was a perfect fit for my past military experience and educational background. Competitive compensation package.

    Cons

    At the time I worked there they had a terrible expense reimbursement program. It took forever to get reimbursed. I would hope it has been replaced by now. Working at a remote client site there were limited opportunities to connect with the larger organization.

    I worked at Keane full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They recruited me out of the blue and gave me a huge raise. Meetings on-site were informative.

    Cons

    I was unable to be placed in further employment after three years with Keane unless I wished to uproot my family and move several hours' drive away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to seek out non-federal government contracts to expand your employment portfolio, and to not be so dependent on one large contract.

    I worked at Keane

    Pros

    At the time I worked for Keane (prior to buyout from Caritor followed by NTT), it was a great place to work with many talented experienced project managers. I learned so much, and was always invited to participate, and contribute.

    Cons

    Once Caritor took over Keane many of these talented folks left the company and the company's quality and reputation in the market took a nose dive.
