    I worked at Orion Systems Integrators full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. Very friendly and efficient recruitment, marketing team. 2. Easily approachable managers. 3. Highly competitive salaries and on-time payment. 4. Hassle-free H1B transfer and GC process. I really liked their immigration team. 5. Helped me find projects in the location of my interest. 6. Flexible on leaves. Very good benefits. 7. Has a very good HR team. As compared to many big MNCs, I really liked this company.

    Cons

    Their client base is good in East and West coast areas. Only one downside is that, they do not have much of direct clients in Central region, where I was primarily looking for opportunities.

    Pros

    - Innovation: There are a number of firms which are driven by technology. Orion is one of the few that strives to drive technology through innovation. Each employee is encouraged to let their creative juices flow and think out of the box to come up with solutions to challenging business problems (of which there is no dearth) - Client focus: Orion believes in building and fostering long term relationships and treating their client's business as they would their own. They establish themselves as an extended arm of the client rather than a separate entity. - Active projects: If you're working at Orion, rest assured, you will not have a situation where there is no work/project available. At any given time, there are a large number of active projects running and rest assured one will always be engaged. -Build your own career path: If you have the energy and willingness, you can go far in this company. Being a mid sized company, one gets to wear different hats and then choose to pursue their strengths in a particular role. There are common instances of individuals switching from their original role to a different one and resulting in success.

    Cons

    - All work and not enough play - instances of over engineered processes lead to confusion - No work from home policy

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in employee growth & team building activities. There have been significant improvements in the recent past but not enough to balance the scales.

    A mid-szie company striving to become one of the best in the industry. Orion is putting the right people in the right places to strengthen their market share. The end result, supported by brilliant teams of engineers, software professionals and skilled management folks will bode well for the company's future.

    Cons

    There are always growing pains associated with change however the pros strongly out-weigh the cons

    Advice to Management

    Continue to change towards a more transparent style of management realizing that an educated workforce is better poised to perform well knowing the positive results will be shared by everyone.

    I worked at Orion Systems Integrators full-time

    Pros

    You get an opportunity to see the dark side of the worst corporate politics.

    Cons

    Heavy favoritism destroys employee morale. Skills and experience does not matter. No emphasis on building able and skilled work force. High attrition rate. Upper management is all about numbers game on excel spreadsheet because that earns them huge bonuses. HR is non-existent for non managerial employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take a chill pill. You'll never be able to get the customer loyalty you desire if you do not first have the back of your employees. In the game you are playing, you are also just a number and sooner or later, it will catch up with you!
