    Pros

    Great long term assignment, easy to deal with and excellent clients to work for during assignments.

    Cons

    No benefits, pay a little low.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for PTO or paid time off, many companies close during holidays or have shut down periods, during which time consultants do not get paid, so considerng some prorated pay for those times. Thanks

    Pros

    Synova provides a great work environment for its HQ employees and provides great support for its contractors. Synova's hiring process is simple and straight forward. Synova provides a fair benefits and compensation package.

    Cons

    When working as a contractor your negotiated rate and benefits are SET IN STONE. There is no way to renegotiate anything later down the line.

    Advice to Management

    Great recruiting process and contracts management. For employees new to the contractor process, ensure you stress the how that process works during the recruiting process.

    Pros

    They provide decent pay, 401k, life insurance. They treat you great while they're recruiting you- after all you pay their salaries. They offer bonuses if you recruit others too.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are expensive, don't expect a raise or any help. Once they recruit you, they forget you. It's difficult to get them to work with your manager to get you a review or raise. What you see is pretty much all you'll ever get.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your contract employees are the ones earning money for the company.
