    Pros

    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    The Company does not support their consultants, and throw them under the bus. The value of the company is a 30% profit margin.. They will use inferior resources overseas to pad profit margins. Once your contract is up... You are gone. No additional opportunities. Consultant handles all expenses and then when the client severs relationship. the comsultant is left without a home, and the bills.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that management learns that being a body shop is the quickest way to lose market growth
