  1. Tiandi...Wake Up. Your consultants were the future of your firm. You're blowing it.

    Pros

    Challenging Projects for sure. Compensation was most reasonable at first assignment w/ initial living 2nd home expenses covered 100%, great while lasted. They get you in the door with big operators in expensive cost of living cities with BIG DATA problem challenges. Careful what you ask for.

    Cons

    Beware of apparent "start-up mega majors" who expect to turn straw into gold and consultants to walk on water. Assigned kindergarten client office culture difficult for any normal humans to succeed. Consultants treated like second-rate employees and despised by co-workers envious of the higher rate for breaking rocks for the Nords. Good luck there pal. Consultants over-exploited to ridiculously impracticle expectations. What do you do to relieve work stress LOL.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of trusting professionals you execute one - year worthless contracts with after transitioning and stranding them away from homes with exorbitant set-up and egress expenses. No expedient reassignments after client/Tiandi failures to fulfill good faith contract performance. Doing best finding new clients/employers w/o TE knocking on Houston doors while stranded. Unwanted, forced re-assignment to mega operator client with severely hidden, fouled corporate internal departmental battles flaring. Client pre-existing detrimental, cyclic, ego-centric, office nasty politics impacting consultant performance. Extremely unskilled line managers only worried about self-survival, not there to aid success of "dream-based consultant assignments." Client manager had a new (unwritten) evolving role dream every day...literally expected consultant to predict undefined data user requests without polling surveys ...QC of invisible unsecured data, etc. "perform miracles on mission impossibles." Expected to solve cyclic, pre-existing monumental challenges without leadership backing to accomplish. ALL that glitters...rethink the think. Learned much from this experience thanks be to GOD. Thanks Tiandi for throwing an overqualified professional in to the Nord bear pit without a spear to truck out with. Should have transitioned me to another better client after pleadings, based on prudent Tiandi sales/marketing totally lacking interfacing feedback. Shouldn't blacklist faithfully diligent contractors caught up in client internal politics. Onward and Upward. PG,CPG,MBA,SME

    Pros

    Really great office staff, competent team of engineers and consultants, well meaning support personnel who went out of their way to help me, and a client who really did need their help. A sound business model, high-quality consultants out front, backed up by a low-cost back office in China servicing the oil and gas data management industry.

    Cons

    This company is THE example of corporate leadership failure, someone should write a book. There is no corporate culture, values to play lip service only, no definition of what the company actually does, no strategic planning, no personnel reviews, no incentives, limited benefits, and a CEO who's been asleep at the wheel since 2007. I've seen the pitch up close and I know what goes on in the back, there is nothing more here than smoke and mirrors. There is no special technology, processes, or technical expertise that you can't get anywhere else for a little more money and a lot more quality. They're a consulting company with no consultants, a data management company with no data managers, a data analytics company with one part time guy, and a staffing company without any staff. The people here deserve better, you deserve better, find a job somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real leader and build a real business, with all those fancy profiles on the corporate web page it shouldn't be that hard for you to put this together.

    Pros

    Meet some really nice co-worker,

    Cons

    It is cheating the company.
     I am thinking the only people left are the weak. The good will be all gone. very poor management. The owner laid-off more than half of the staff in the same day he lost one contract! ... without any notice. Very disappointing

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat people. Understand that the good employees are your only chance of surviving the competition.
