    Good jobs for the right skills - like most contract recruiters

    I worked at OAO Technology Solutions

    Pros

    Good Contracts for those with the right talents, like any other contract company, but these people have good contacts that find good jobs. My fit was perfect and the manager and recruiter who represented me did a great job, with no crap - like Joe Fridday - Just the facts. I was brought in to a job before it was even advertised, so I had a jump on the competition which was a great advantage for a difficult position

    Cons

    Contract work always has the downside of time scale that can bite you, but that the the contract not the employer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had no contact at that level so it would be useless for me to comment

    Pros

    Great benefits, relaxed office atmosphere. The people here work hard and seem very well qualified. Nobody has to work late or on weekends.

    Cons

    Location, economy isn't good right now. With the economy being so slow, companies are cutting back on their staffing needs so we really need to find new business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your employees what is important to them.

    Pros

    O A O T Allowed me to advance my career by using it as a stepping stone to get a higher paying job some where else.

    Cons

    O A O T Management always struggled and did not seem to care about their US employees. It did not ever seem like they looked out for the best interest of their employees. They strive to be the outsources outsourcer but are nothing more then another contract house. I worked for other normal contract houses that treated me better then O A O T. When they hired folks it sounded like a good place to work with a drive for good processes and documentation. None of this ever came to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your US employee's.

    OAO is a company with tremendous potential, but executive leadership has continued to waste opportunites.

    I worked at OAO Technology Solutions

    Pros

    Despite all the poor atmosphere, staff maintained a positive and cooperatived attitude.

    Cons

    Executive management were overly optimistic about potential growth.
    Often failed to deliver new business.
    Appeared to be very coordination between various divisions and no real attempts developing synergy by bringing one division's services to another division's clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold executive leadership accountable to introducing client's from one division to another division. Make their pay & bonuses dependant on these activities.

    Good people, mediocre communication, would recommend for short term contracts only.

    Pros

    The people are great, lots of talent, and they are always willing to put in 110% to get the job done.

    Cons

    Wasted talent and in some case over-hyped talent that the company puts way too much faith in. We've had many missed opportunities in our existing contracts. Complacency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on growing what you already have, find out what talent you really have and use it. Get the right people supporting sales.
