    I have been working at Sirius Solutions as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    People are friendly, professional and helpful. They offer good opportunities to work on different projects and offer in house training

    Cons

    They could improve on some of the benefits that they offer to their employees. E.g. health benefits, emergency childcare benefits.

    I worked at Sirius Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Provided an opportunity to demonstrate skills, ability and experience on a contract basis. Produced revenue for the company consistently over a number of years.

    Cons

    When contract assignment is completed and there are no current contract jobs to be assigned, employee is released.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating hard working employees as just a commodity will not help your reputation or improve your company culture. You might try meeting with the people that are actually producing your revenue and make them feel valued.

    I have been working at Sirius Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is good, their benefits are ok, they are generally nice, and they provide nice business travel perks

    Cons

    They consistently deceive you about the amount of work they have available. Although they claim they have many projects, you will spend a lot of time out of work and not getting paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more forthright about the extent to which you can keep your employees busy full time.

    Pros

    They treat you okay are nice.

    Cons

    There's no career path. This is just a place to sit while you look for another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need much better benefits. For these benefits I do not want to leave.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Sirius Solutions as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Used to be a negotiated rate for all projects--rate may change with projects now

    Cons

    Slow to give rate increases but always ask consultants to help find business with clients where placed; may be on the bench frequently depending on skill set, pay, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of employees along with the bottom line.

    I worked at Sirius Solutions full-time

    Pros

    The people at Sirius were very friendly and most of them were highly skilled. Very good work place culture, I never had a problem getting time off for vacation or personal reasons and I was never expected to stay at work later just because my manager was still there.

    Cons

    I had little to no input on assignments and often ended up in a staff augmentation role, which made me feel like there was no career development potential. Annual bonuses based on billable hours, which can be difficult to accumulate.

    I worked at Sirius Solutions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This agency is about the same as the rest of its type when it comes to project placement and pay in general. One great perk is the opportunity to earn paid time off.

    Cons

    Everyone with similar skill sets may not be assigned to projects; the same consultants may be reassigned over others the particular sales person has not worked with in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show the same support for consults as the client when issues beyond the control of the consultants arise.

    I worked at Sirius Solutions

    Pros

    Friendly environment with very smart staff dedicated to high level consulting. Good but narrow customer base. Poor marketing efforts lead to little brand awareness

    Cons

    Company has been adversely effeced by 2008 business downturn so has dumped staff as a result. Will likely rebound when economy does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to branch out of the narrow consulting arena in which the firm currently plays. Needs broader customer base
