    Pros

    In general the people are nice. The client treats you well generally.

    Cons

    Not forthright. Nor do they really know how to sell, get new client, don't trust their employees.... No 401k match. You can buy Obamacare for the same amount you pay for their insurance. Vacation time is only good for salary which few will get. They will not be straight with you. They will spin positive on amount of work or spin positive on your suggestions. Every time you offer anything, they will tell you the industry doesn't work that way.

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    Great people, good benefits. They seem to empower the employees to do what's needed to get the job done.

    Cons

    Large company, with that comes challenges.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

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