    Should have checked Glassdoor before signing the contract - WORST NIGHTMARE EVER!

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Optimum Solutions

    Pros

    Never encountered "Pros" aspect yet

    Cons

    1. The staffs are very low attitude, unprofessional, and only care about your offer letter signing process (aka getting their commission).
    2. The contract is indeed full of pro-employer (the agent themselves) hidden clauses.
    3. SELFISH recruiter company. Never care about your well-being after you signed the contract. Never helped to negotiate your package. Never care about your career path - they only care about filling up their commission.

    I would give them a quarter star but Glassdoor is too generous to them. BE CAREFUL PEOPLE!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please train your staff to be more professional.

    The BIGGEST CHEATER consulting company

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Singapore (Singapore)
    Former Employee - IT Consultant in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Optimum Solutions as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing.....(If possible,please avoid joining this company,especially as contract employees)

    Cons

    Poor Compensation

    They will force you to sign the contract before sending you to the client interview (so regardless of your performance in the interview, you are already locked for a very low salary)

    They will hold a portion of your salary and on a condition that it will be paid at the end of the contract. But they will never pay you (even after serving the notice period)...then we'll have to go for legal action which is very difficult in Singapore which is ruled by a pro-employer Government !!

    They'll treat you badly if you have a difference of opinion with the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please stop exploiting and cheating the contract employees

    I have been working at Optimum Solutions as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Keeps transparency on the pay scale with the client, so any hike from client will directly convert, this is lot better compared to other vendors who charge the client alot but pay peanuts.

    Cons

    Optimum has been a pure body shopping company so far, so I couldn't expect much support in other ways. Other benefits are as per market standards, nothing so great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There should be Team building activities for the contracting staff

    Pros

    No pros...as per my experience

    Cons

    1. Once placed @ client location they never care about u. If your suffering also they only say we are looking into issue.
    2.3 months notice period.
    3.They say that employee is permanent, but once placed in client location will treat as contractor
    4.No hike every year.All ur hike depends on your good relation with client.
    5.Before joining the company please go thru' reviews, otherwise u will suffer after joining the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If company wants to grow ,he show take care about the employee also.
