    Pros

    Can't think of any right now.

    Cons

    I just wanted to mention that I'm not the only one that feels company is going down hill. I worked there for 4 years and was let go when owners son wanted my job. That was two years ago. And while they did me a huge favor, the pattern of hiring friends and family first obviously continues. You will always be an outsider there if you are not family.

    Advice to Management

    sometimes people like to be treated with respect.

    Pros

    Hard working, dedicated people throughout the company. Ethical in doing business the right way. Innovative, can do attitude from senior management

    Cons

    Doesn't always have name recognition when calling on customers. Company has a career path options but because we are a mid-sized firm it has less options then some of the bigger firms

    Advice to Management

    Continue the strategy of providing the highest value possible to customers and business will continue to grow like it has for many years.

    Pros

    Good medical benefits, very good immigration lawyers, various short term opportunities.

    Cons

    They are not staffing much anymore. I joined as a staffing consultant. So, there haven't been any salary reviews since I've joined the company like 4 years ago.

    Pros

    They have a good benefits package, a good referral package, and as far as consultants, they have many exciting opportunities to work in a variety of fields

    Cons

    The main issue is nepotism. People remain in the company and get promotions because of a direct relation or by being a close family friend of senior management, while they totally ignore actual production and work. There is a total lack of loyalty, and senior management uses scare tactics to keep employees in line.
