    Pros

    Extremely supportive CEO. Very cohesive and helpful office staff. Friendly work environment with great mentorship, enriching projects and strong opportunities for professional growth. Solid pay with excellent perks (such as guest house). The company followed through on all of their promises.

    Cons

    None. No company is perfect, but SVAM was exceptional. I now work for a large Fortune 500 company and I genuinely miss the personalized attention I received while working at SVAM.

    Pros

    If you start of scratch in usa, its ok, Svam is a good sponsor , them have a lot of contacts with a many middleman's, you can find a work quickly, svam provide the support to live a while in a guesthouse, I think, that is the only one company that do that, so that is a good point. The challenge come after that you find out a work, the process to find a word can taken, 1 months up to 3 months. they sponsor the visa and give you insurance.

    Cons

    svam, is not the only option in usa , They are only a sponsor more that exist in states , and them are working with a schema of layers, so your salary is split into different middleman , so if you have only one middleman or if you work directly, your salary can be better. You need consider the balance the process of a green card, take time, at least more that 2 years .... so try to handle a good wage, take a look the salary that is pay in each state, in order to have a idea. Usa is expensive so for example a rent is between 800 to 1000 thousand dollars and the food and transportation like 600 more, so your salary is affected. The medical services are very expensive, try to have a dental service added in your insurance

    Advice to Management

    the insurance can include dental service.
    when you change of project the support for the hotel can be handled for one months.
    the salary must be modified after you find work (depend of the project)
    Have a bonus after certain time can be good.

    Pros

    Base full-time salary and benefits; TN/H1B Visa sponsorship; Relocation reimbursement; Great Consultancy Projects; Good work-life balance; Office Culture

    Cons

    Training even when is part of the benefits there's no time to go out and learn something new. Most of the clients are in the New York metro area which is cool BUT it's very expensive to live.
