    OK company if you are not ambitious.

    Associate Software Architect (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

    ProsGood work environment (if you happen to be on the right team)
    Flexible hours
    Lot of internal trainings
    Multiple locations and clients to work with

    ConsNo perks
    Hikes are intermittent and sub standard
    Lower than industry standard pay scale
    Not very transparent about company policies and processes

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease the pay scale. Make it atleast match 90% of industry standards.
    You guys are ripping off old timers who have joined and grown with this company.
    Their pay scale is really low compared to jump-shippers who join as laterals.
    We guys have been faithful and meticulous in the company's growth but what we get is peanuts.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Losing its edge

    Program Manager (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    Pros- good client list
    - flexibility

    Cons- Talent development not priority
    - Bad Politics
    - Results don't matter. Sycophancy gets you into innermost circle.

    Advice to Senior Management- Get back to basics: focus on client, build new service capability, hire people for talent and proven results
    - Get competent leaders to run and revive the business
    - Leaders should spend time with clients than celebrities

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Another run-of-the-mill consulting company

    Consultant (Former Employee) Albany, NY

    ProsThe people working there are bright, not just competent but also talented. And they were a genuinely nice group of people. There was also the opportunity to learn and work with the latest technology,

    ConsThe hours were brutal; they were to the point where getting enough sleep, eating properly, and any exercise didn't happen. The help desk was a toll call; this must be the only company in the US of any size without a toll-free number for the help desk. The skills of the off-shore employees varied; though there tended to be more misses than hits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes it's better to walk away from a job than seriously underbid on one.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ConsVery unprofessional behaviour, hard to communicate

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease have people from other background grow in up your company instead of sticking to just one ethnicity

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
