    Pros

    Mid-tier contracting option offer good salary in lieu of benefits.
    Offer good deals for contract to potential employers.

    Cons

    Illinois location has one primary client.
    W2 - contract positions are not paid market value.
    Illinois location is extremely short staffed
    Offered benefits packages are too costly
    You rarely hear from the company during you contract.
    Company promises that your contract is only temp to perm. Reality is most contract do not turn in Illinois.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more attention to developing your contract staff. Assist you contractor in identifying additional positions when a current contract is ending.
    Renegotiate you health benefit packages.

    Pros

    Benign neglect management, not an oppressive corporate culture.
    Employees get things done for clients.

    Cons

    Very unresponsive to employee needs.
    Management is very unresponsive to employee driven productivity enhancing recommendations.
    Very low pay for the work.
    Limited career advancement - don't expect a promotion in the first five years.

    Advice to Management

    If you want productivity or happy employees, you need to spend money. Spend the appropriate amount on pay. Spend money on real accounting systems. Spend money on fixing facilities, like HVAC so you don't have employees walking around in coats all day. Spend money on professional email systems.

    Pros

    The upper management, the people have been around the business development world for decades are extremely kind and recognize hard work and effort that you put forth.

    Cons

    The upper management is nice, of course but you don't deal with them everyday. The people you deal with everyday come in with the standard attitude of the D.C. area, ignorant, hateful, and drama prone. I am an IT professional via my old job that I was laid off from and have certifications and experience which in the IT industry means more sometimes than a degree. I was treated like an idiot since I didn't go to college, so towards the end of my stay I just

    A personality test for your application might filter some of the people out.
