    Pros

    1. Nobody forces you to take certifications or exams. 2. No micromanaging. 3. If you are proficient in the line of work, you can finish the work sooner than the deadline and enjoy till the next phase begins. 4. Offshore is good so, just delegating work will pretty much do for you.

    Cons

    1. Less learning opportunities. 2. Company will not pay for Certifications or exams. Even though they say they have a clause to pay, that clause is pretty much useless and means that you have to pay for your own. 3. Virtually no growth perspectives. If you just want a stable job with very minimum increments and not expecting promotions etc., then this company is for you. 4. No way to get promoted. Even if you get promoted to Senior PM, you will still be doing developer job as the already existing senior management keep switching roles within themselves.

    Advice to Management

    1. Be aggressive in getting clients or acquiring other companies. 2. Been there for 20 years in consulting, having just 1 major client is a drawback. 3. Upon getting new clients, try shuffling resources so that people within the company can grow to a much better extent thereby providing better quality consulting.


  2. Great work place.

    Pros

    It's a paycheck. (Although there's a good chance that it won't be delivered on time or in the right amount).

    Cons

    A lack of resources coupled with poor communication and detached upper management prevents them from consistently delivering what they've promised to clients. Project deadlines are frequently missed. Sales people are told to keep closing, but many times the projects they sell can't be executed properly or completed successfully due to insufficient resources.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your employees like valued team members. Once monthly pay checks, an inability to reimburse employees in a timely manner for legitimate business expenses, and your stingy attitude about holidays and other time off are turning the best and brightest in the industry AWAY from your company.

    Pros

    They seem to have solid relationships with their customers.

    Cons

    Be careful choosing a position here. Executive leadership changes frequently and there must be something causing such frequent changes. Once you get into a position you are stuck. Most higher level positions are filled from outside. Time off policies treat employees as contract hourly staff. Little regard for individuals. Payroll is paid only at the end of month (another way the treat employees like contract staff)

    Advice to Management

    1. Maintain executive team 2. Improve personnel policies to show you value your largest asset 3. Improve vacation and sick leave policies to treat employees more like salaried employees instead of hourly.

    Pros

    It's a job, that is about it. Allowed me to sustain myself although at a minimum.

    Cons

    Might as well be putting together widgets on an assembly line. Pay is below par and benefits get cut year after year. Sinking company so I abandoned ship.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a conscience and send some of HR employees to training classes.

    Pros

    They are experts are spinning unwanted truths

    Cons

    Very political company. The CEO was a genius with putting American's into upper management positions, great for image. There is no honest transparency with the employees, only the "smoke and mirrors" as another reviewer mentioned. They manage by intimidation and are highly discriminatory towards a certain gender and race. They spend more time "covering their tracks" than actually doing the right thing on a day to day basis. T

    Advice to Management

    Start being honest and demonstrate character. Your actions will go farther with your people than your fake presentations.

    There was a bias towards employees from India and offshore team. There needs to be more communication.

    There needs to be better communication throughout.
