    Pros

    Most positions offer considerable autonomy. It is possible to get better benefits if you're a strong negotiator and willing to push back against their first offer.

    Cons

    Difficult to get in touch with company management. Little personal interaction. Limited opportunity for growth.

    Pros

    The holiday party was cool. Was trusted and left to my own devices in working with the client.

    Cons

    Little to no communication, my "person manager' frequently changed yet I was rarely informed or met my manager. I did meet one manager who tried to establish rapport but then he disappeared without notice. Poor equipment. I had to resort to using my personal PC on client site when assigned PC became unusable. This was finally replaced after 6 months of reporting issues.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to engage and communicate with your contract staff. Developing a relationship and rapport will lead to a better work environment and loyalty from employees.

    Pros

    Pactera sponsor visas like H1B, L1 and they'll sponsor GC after you've been working there for 1 year

    Cons

    sometimes, different team may need to work OT, therefore, it's a kind of unbalance between work and life if you mind.

    Advice to Management

    hope there's better benefits, promotions, wages...
