    Pros

    No reason except you are in very much need of it.
    There are few good employes who got trapped in them.

    Cons

    very very very low wages, they get marginal 100k for each employ they are providing and in return they pay you just 35-40k. They are just brokers and no where in consulting they just know to talk and make deals with manager nothing else. He dont know ABCD of technologies also.
    would never advise to anyone for this company my paychecks were always late by 2 months and when i left the company my witholdings were more than 5k and they paid that more than 6 months later that too i was about to file a case against them and sue them for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Peterson Technology Partners as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    For the fist month was paid on time

    Cons

    Extremely unethical, very shady, will do anything to make a profit. That includes flat out deceit, lying and other unscrupulous activities. They treat their software consultants like dirt, and have no respect or loyalty towards any former, current or future employee's

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell your business and go into politics, your completely unethical and decrepit quest for the almighty dollar will serve you well.

    Pros

    A great company to work for. The management team is very honest very empathetic and is always looking for ways to enrich the experience of the consultants. I hear from them often, and see them going out of their way to come see me and make sure all is well with my placement. Nick and Jay are very personable and very approachable

    Cons

    Nothing rally bad to say, I feel so at home here, they care,they are honest and they are accessible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue looking out for your consultants It is a rare thing in this cut throat industry today. Always be honest and open and go the extra mile to make the consultants/employees experience positively memorable

    Pros

    The only good thing is that job placement guaranteed. So, if you just starting your career and don't have other options probably it is worth the shot.

    Cons

    Low pay, poor benefits. Management cares only of quick turn around of profit and takes advantage of their employees.

    I worked at Peterson Technology Partners as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I have really nothing nice to say about them. They were completely disrespectful and duplicitous in dealing with me in a forthright manner.

    Cons

    Peterson Technology Partners is the most unprofessional placement agency I have ever worked with. They’re disorganized, disingenuous, deceptive and downright duplicitous.

    I was on a six-month gig that was located in the downtown Chicago area. But almost from the beginning of the assignment, I began having accounting problems with my bi-weekly ADP payroll statements. Sometimes checks would not arrive in my Direct Deposit account on the day promised. Sometimes checks were deposited in my account nearly a week late. When I would call about this issue, Peterson rarely responded promptly. Waiting forty-eight hours (or longer) for a response was not unusual.

    Then about three months into my assignment, I stopped getting ADP online payroll statements for over a month. During that time, I had no way of keeping track of my hours, payroll deductions or any other basic payment/accounting information. I repeatedly complained about this, but Peterson’s attitude was dismissive and arrogant. They refused to deal with this issue in a forthright manner. They even refused to send me the statements via the U.S. mail, claiming “it was out of their hands.” But the end, they stopped responding to my phone calls and e-mail messages entirely.

    Finally, the problem was resolved. But it took months to rectify – and only after I threatened to report them to the appropriate regulatory agencies.

    I would discourage anyone from working with Peterson Technology Partners in the strongest possible terms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys need to be more honest and forthright with your contract workers, and act in a much more professional manner.

    Pros

    You do eventually get placed in a position.

    Cons

    They are completely unprofessional. The "training" is nothing more than sitting in a room and coding all day. There is no one to teach or instruct you. The only thing you have is a nightly conference call where you get berated for everything you do. To get anything done, you have to consistently berate the higher ups and they will do their best to either avoid you, ignore you, or give you vague answers. There is no orientation or guidance with anything. You are left in the dark the whole time. The lack of information is what keeps this shady business going. The positive review is definitely written by an employee there. Ironically it seems the review is catered to speak positively about all the negative aspects of this company. Avoid at all costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what it means to be a professional company. Its not enough to just talk like a big-shot. You have to be able to act like it.
