    Pros

    Prime IT Has a good client base, so you have the possibility of working on something even if you don't have much experience. This doesn't mean they don't care about your abilities, since they do one, or several, test interviews before deciding to take you as a consultant.

    Good manager experience (I even got training to better perform in interviews with potential clients).

    Pay was ok for the position and experience I add.

    Cons

    I had an awesome and engaged manager, but overall other managers were quite "fake". Beautiful women, warm smiles, but soon you will realize that it's just for show... They only care about the image they (and you) will pass to the client. Nothing else...

    Advice to Management

    It's ok to be corporate and a bit more serious sometimes. The cool and hip attitude in a suit only works for a couple of days. People do notice it isn't real.

  2. Great management team!

    Pros

    - They have a lot of clients therefore a lot of job opportunities in diferent locations/technology/experience.
    - They sponsor a lot of events which provide not only fun but where you can meet people and share experiences.
    - Depending of your experience the salary can be quite good.

    Cons

    - Besides the events you have zero feedback on what´s going on in your company, it seems you are forgotten in your client (like most outsourcing companies).
    - The annual review is a joke because your manager will only tell you what the client told him and any salary review was already discussed without you (tipically low values)
    - They only care about making money so they avoid making significant salary reviews. That only happens when you say you want to leave.

    Advice to Management

    The business model in the company (profit like crazy) induces that the consultants don't feel appreciated. They are lied to when ask for a salary increase (excuses not to) but they see co-workers getting the money when they threaten to leave.

    Pros

    As an outsourcing company it allows you to change projects while working at great clients
    They ALWAYS pay on time, even if client delays payments for a few months.
    Every two months, company outsourcers gather after hours to drink and have games/fun.

    Cons

    No career perspective.Salary doesn't always keep up with age at company/clients/responsibilities. No training.
    Bad management, out of view and with no perspective of human relations.
    Lost guidance. It fells like it's a prolongation of college.

    Advice to Management

    Maintain regular visits to clients and outsourcers. Invest on technical formation and human relations.
    Allow outsourcers to be "acquired" by clients or plan for increasing salary.

    Work closer with the new team members, assign a senior member to acclimate new members in the client's organizations, check and collect regular feedback on the first months.

    There could be more rewards (other than money) in order to keep the employees motivated and eager to work.

    Pros

    If you are starting your career maybe it's a company that offers you the first step to enter the market, otherwise, you should look for better companies to work.

    Cons

    Management is sick, they hire beautifull girls to make you smile, that's all about smilling.

    After some time, they don't remember you exist.

    Avaliations are a waste of time, they keep blinding you until the point you just think to quit them, in fact that's quite depressive and sick.

    Managers are not managers are simply commercials trying to get the more and more contracts.

    Brief they don't simply care about you.

    Advice to Management

    They should care more about people, there's no management they simply forget you after 3 months on the client. They don't even care if you leave.
