    Honest Company, but cost is higher than it should be

    Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsVery transparent company. They work by the book and are very accessible. Staff is very friendly. GC staff is very knowledgeable.

    ConsThe percentage system isn't the greatest though you can negotiate. Job search team isn't the greatest either, but if you are good, it won't matter.

    Advice to Senior ManagementChange the percentage system to the way industry works. Employees feel cheated no matter what. Improve you job search team.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Bad employer to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPartial Salary On time for employees

    ConsPays only partial salary on time, rest of the pay comes the client pays to Marlabs (90-120 days)
    The immigration lawyer is very bad, screwed up lot of applications, so very bad company for Green Card.
    Never gives labor certification/I-140 copies to you. So even after you leave company you are depend on them.
    They will ask you pay the employer tax
    Never find any project to you when you are on bench.
    No bench pay
    Always ask you to work on percentage basis and ask you to pay the employer tax
    Having wyoming office just to run the payroll to file green card.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't play with employees carrier/life.
    Have open communication with employees on green card
