    Pros

    Wide variety of interesting projects. Performance is recognized and appreciated. Fairly laid-back corporate culture. Friendly people and accessible management. Nice office.

    Cons

    Projects are short-term, so there's not much security. Consultants can end up faced with difficult decisions - if an engagement requires a long commute and there's no other engagement for a particular employee- guess what...

    Advice to Management

    Don't know. It's a tough business. Find a way to communicate to potential clients that Risetime represents a big step up from run-of-the-mill staffing firms.


  2. Unethical and ruthless - once work has dried up, be prepared to be dismissed

    Pros

    Pay is okay, they bring in snacks on Fridays.

    Cons

    Once no work for you, you are done. Location is bad - share floor with ruffians. They act like work that was outsourced was done in house. I won't elaborate on their ethical lapses and unethical practices, but it is shameful.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people from the get-go.
