    Low pay, staff is indifferent to employee concerns

    Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsThe company Christmas party was a hoot. They went so far as to rent the Experience Music Project, which is a really cool venue.

    ConsThis is generally considered one of the bottom feeding agencies working the Microsoft contracts. The company that this was merged from (Vanceinfo) was accused of unethical conduct, and rumor has it that they could be facing new accusations as well. The pay is also much lower than other contracting agencies.

    Not a good place for career growth

    Software Development Engineer In Test (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    Proscouldn't think of any pros worth mentioning

    ConsI don't think they have any process for career growth of employees, you will end up with same designation/title till you are in the company. I think this is mainly because there is no performance review process in the company.
    If you think you deserve a salary hike then you have to fight for it with the HR and Account managers and management.
    Immigration team is the worst and careless.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAccount Managers should be trained to have better interaction with employees placed at client locations. Please introduce a performance review process just like any other company in the IT WORLD.

    this is a nice company to work for, I do like the people management in this company

    Build Engineer (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsI have a very good time to work in this company, have a lot of fun activities.

    Consnot really. if I have to say, I would suggest to have a more clearly,specific career yearly review program to define an employee's value.

    Pleasant contracting experience

    Network Engineer (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsLow overhead, while on contract at another company they essentially leave you do your duties and don't try to intervene.
    Competitive Pay, I was offered a much higher pay rate as a contractor with Pactera than a couple other companies that were also recommended to me

    ConsThey were in between moving building on the Microsoft campus when I started, so navigating and finding the correct people while getting started proved difficult
    They are currently finishing a merger of companies, and while they seem to have handled it well, there also seems to be some confusion and empty holes in the patchwork of the company, which I'm sure they'll fix with time

    Advice to Senior ManagementFinish out the merger smoothly, and continue to give vendors competitive wages in order to take more of the market.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Integrity of the senior managements, process, workflow, HR, sales, onsite and offshore teams.

    IT Consultant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsHeterogeneous of senior managers was dominated by Singaporean. process, workflow, HR, sales, onsite and offshore teams were created as issue goes.

    ConsVery politicise corporate environment was dominated by Singaporean. process, workflow, HR, sales, onsite and offshore teams was not properly defined.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTear down red tapes and towards better transparency to everyone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
