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

    Pros

    Free parking Available
     Free Shuttle to Airport at the hotel across the street
     Free lunch once a week
     Friendly workers
     Company would sponsor H-1 visa for right candidates
     Nice Christmas gift and good Christmas party
     Quarterly bonus
     Free Giant tickets at times
     Free coffee, coco, soda at pantry

    Cons

    Minimum 10-12 work hours a day
    Monthly salary; no compensation for overtime
    Employers and managers take employees for granted
    Many staff are required to work at night/mid night/weekends
    No HR - employees are not protected: no one keep tracks on vacation balance; staff call you on sick day and vacation
    Managers/directors have low EQ; they do not know what they want and do not give clear communication and expectation;
    Employees are required to take multiple projects with impossible deadlines; even you tell them if it is impossible. You are expected to work day and night non stop to complete your projects on time.
    Poor training for staff; they expect you to know your job on day 1
    Super competitive environment; bad atmosphere; no team work
    No career advancement
    They hire people who know so and so; such as manager's husband or wife; staff's cousin etc.
    No Appreciation for hardworking staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be realistic on deadlines.
    Don't violate the laws. A full time employer supposes to work 40 hours a week not 55 or 65.
    Don't staff when they are sick; staff are not supposed to be on call 24/7/365.
    Be nice to your staff.
    The upper management needs better EQ and interpersonal skills.
    Give better compensation for staff; otherwise they all would leave the company eventually.

    Pros

    Only good thing is about the location. Location is good very close to airport and has some nice views of the ocean. Covered parking lot in basement.Do not expect personal growth intellectually or otherwise. Spend time to look for another job rather than working here.

    Cons

    Company wants you to work 12 hours a day minimum without any overtime/compensation days. You don't have your personal life here. If you don't work 60-70 hours a week, you won't get bonus. Salary is very low as compared to market rate around 60K. Don't expect much from them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get realistic

    Pros

    No reason to work here. Wasting of time. Spend time to look for another job rather than working here. Only good thing is about the location. Location is good very close to airport and ocean. Covered parking lot in basement.

    Cons

    No balance in life. Company wants you to work 10-12 hours a day minimum. You don't have your personal life here. If you don't work 60-70 hours a week, you won't get bonus. If you put these many hours, still maximum bonus you will get is 5% of your salary. Salary it self is very low as compared to market rate. Starting salary may be 36K - 40K but don't expect much from them. They have stared quarterly bonus system which come in your hand just few hundred dollars (around $500) after putting these many hours. Company rules and benefits are totally different then what you can see in company handbook. Title for you job is totally different then what you are doing there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good to pay competitive salary and bonus. Everyone works for money if you are not going to pay some other will get that talent.
