    I have been working at Optimal Solutions Integration full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good Pay (if you negotiate as a contractor), lots of work, growing company, experienced Senior (C-level) Management

    Cons

    Doesn't feel like a US based consultancy, lots of outsourcing and H1Bs.
    Disguises Contract work as "full time" jobs.
    Middle Management are just seasoned consultants with little to no management experience.
    Too many admin issues (maybe apart of the growing pains)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To retain and attract top talent you need to promote a culture that attracts US based consultants
