    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    If they are desperate enough to hire you, you can strike a bargain

    Cons

    No value for employees' personal life.
    Company culture is such that people shout at each other in all discussions.
    The senior management is filled with folks who are not fit to get a job elsewhere so they are sticking around.
    Zero Work ethics or people management skills with the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the non-functioning layer and accept you are a body-shopping company.
    Send your management to people management and anger management training before any employee files a court case on employee harassment.

    Current Employee - Assistant Vice President Senior Project Manager  in  Jersey City, NJ
    Current Employee - Assistant Vice President Senior Project Manager in Jersey City, NJ

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, no one bothers regarding appraisals, training, etc. which is good. They dont care how you are especially if at client site since they care only about billing. Thus good for client facing resources

    Cons

    Management cadre are mostly crooks. They inflate tremendously data to project growth, knowing the system never bothers to audit. Feeds only that information which will satisfy their superiors, dare not question especially the CEO. CEO lives in a dream world thinking his company is as great as top 3 management companies, because thats what his reports feed him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let go of 70% of current management especially those who are so called partners.
