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

    Pros

    Prompt response from the HR team on all kinds of issues. Decent paid time off. Very professional. While they try to stick to the contractual agreements pretty strongly, they are nice enough to support their employees when they find a better opportunity (career growth wise) and when they try to move on. Prompt responses from the HR team even to the former employees. Last but not least, the parties and the get togethers, they are always fun. This firm will grow. Hope to work with these nice people again sometime in future.

    Cons

    There aren't many, really. One I can think of is - they are concentrated in Texas, NJ and CA. Wish they were in more places in the USA. Get some clients in New England! Also, a 401K probably.

    Pros

    First, the company is primary vendor for Big companies.
    Good place to work, pay on time and they organize family and friends get together well!

    Cons

    Challenges are from the Client, not from the Newt. So I do not have anything to say.

    Pros

    Definitely good place for work. I am working with Newt Global as Senior programmer role since 2010 and enjoying working with them. They were always able to get me right projects and proactively assist while switching projects. While i was in India for vacation i was also offered to work from their India office for few months on offshore project. They have strong, large team and state of art office at Chennai. They execute various SOW projects for different clients at offshore and onsite. In past i had came across some immigration challenges but i was always helped by the Newt HR team and executives very professionally. I have seen them growing rapidly and glad to be their employee .

    Cons

    They are shaping and improving employee benefits packages so future employee will surely benefit

    I worked at NewtGlobal full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    High Profile Accounts that could provide good opportunities for full time employment.

    Cons

    Extremely negative attitude internally, unclear expectations, dishonest management, clear difference in treatment for indian vs non indian, bad benefits package, and two owners that are beyond rude to their employees. When a letter was published expressing dissatisfaction with the internal strife at the company, the solution was to find and terminate the employee without real reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a CEO with the ability to lead.

    Pros

    They have only a few accounts open but they're noteable in size and recognition. Establishing relationships at these companies can be helpful in the long term.

    Cons

    Account Managers:
       Beware that they have a huge shortage of account managers, not only because the owners are awful leaders but because they're also deplorable human beings. Their main concern is making money and it is their business so there wouldn't be anything wrong if it wasn't at the expense of their own employees. They will lie and promise anything in order to ensure you join. Once you do, you will be plugged into an "account manager" role where they need resources the most and from there it only gets worse. You will be micromanaged to no end and be told exactly how to do your job. If results pan out, the owners have a special condescending way of taking credit and stripping you of any good work you might have done. If something goes poorly, rest assured the finger will be pointed at you and they will assume no responsibility. Not only will you have Neeta breathing down your neck with a passive aggressive word ready at all times, you will be backed by a similarly frustrating recruiting team. Just remember it's not their fault. The owners make their work just as impossible to complete as they make your job.
       Compensation: One of the things that might keep you considering this company is the compensation. Awful work experience and the promise of riches, the typical golden handcuffs. Rest assured the decision to leave/not work at newt global is still not a difficult one. They will promise things in the form of a "bonus", a percentage of marginal revenue. They will do everything to cheat you out of it by bringing up unclear goals and expectations you should have met in order to keep you ineligible. If all else fails, they will remind you it's a bonus and up to their discretion, not to be treated like a true commission. Beware, these are not honest people.

    Consultants:
       Make sure to negotiate, as they like to keep a hefty margin that they're willing to negotiate especially now that their accounts are losing faith in Newts ability to deliver quality workers. Beware that the owners are interested in gathering information from where ever you're working. They will attempt to pick your brain and ask for access to your computer and your passwords. They will pester you endlessly and they have no respect for your time.

    Both Account Managers and Consultants
     The owner's narcissism will make them think that you owe them since they gave you a job. They will ask you to come to the office at ridiculous times, monthly 6:30 am meetings you're required to go to, Sync up calls at 11 pm or any time that works for the boss's schedule. They are the only important people in the company and you revolve around their schedule even if it means working on Saturday, Sunday, 6 am, Midnight, etc.
    Another warning. You're health insurance is through the roof. Most probably because they have people like their parents and children listed as employees. Not only to save themselves on some taxes but the parents have been taking advantage of the medical insurance for all major surgeries and procedures they might need. You will be subsidizing those costs by paying the now ridiculously high premium.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have your accounts right now because of the exploiting way you dealt with your previous relationships. Instead of blaming everyone for why your relationships are faltering and why account managers are leaving, it's time to self reflect. Just because you were once a succesfull worker or PM does not make you a decent leader.

    Working at Newt Global will give you real world training like no where else I've worked at before.

    Cons

    There are some work-life balance issues. You are expected to work late and long hours without being told you are. If you don't, then there are a lot of passive aggressive things that begin to happen.
