    Pros

    You get great experience with Microsoft that you might not otherwise have

    Cons

    BUT doesn't mean you will be easily transition to a role with Microsoft and lack of career development both in role and within Xtreme.

    Advice to Management

    Get more people to help manage teams, the Xtreme Person I report to doesn't always reply and doesn't help try to career development for employee's looking for it

    Pros

    Great Benefits- good starting pay- great starter job

    Cons

    No advancement opportunities. No Reviews. They say they have career development but they don't when asked. Management is slow to respond always

    Advice to Management

    Be more responsive and engaged with your employees. With Microsoft's new vendor policy try to ensure vendors get on the "exempt" list rather than making their managers do the work.

    Pros

    The job is great and hours are very flexbile. That also all depends on the contract and location of your position.

    Cons

    PTO is Joelle and unless you're single the benefits are way too outrageous to have.

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting is very slow and treats you like a # bit once you are an employment, the higher management is great and supportive.

    There is one thing worse than working for them: being unemployed. Maybe.

    Pros

    X-Treme Consulting outsources employees only to Microsoft. You have access to tons of Microsoft products training (video and presentations). You also have free soda. But not from X-Treme Consulting.

    Cons

    No corporate culture, no performance evaluation, you are basically by yourself. The fact that outsourced employees can stay with Microsoft for 18 months only made things better for them and worse for employees, once if someone leaves it resets the clock for any outsourced position and it is just a matter to recruit a new person. During the time I worked fro them, I was invited to go to a picnic and to go to a place to have a picture taken with my "co-workers" to make me feel part of something. Employees receive a US$5 Starbucks card as a birthday gift.

    Advice to Management

    Emails sent to the owner asking for help with my transition were not answered. Kind of clear they are happy the way they are and that they really don't care about their employees.

    Pros

    Xtreme provides a variety of contract opportunities with local companies.

    Cons

    Not very good a placing candidates into new positions if they have come off a project.

    Advice to Management

    Say what the company is, a stafffing company.

    Pros

    Employee representative is nice and visits the job site regularly to check in and ask how the employees are doing

    Cons

    - Company is unresponsive when employees voice their concerns. Laptop did not having the capacity to run data-heavy Excel reports, and Xtreme took months to address the issue. Computers are outdated and bulky compared to what other consulting companies provide. - Senior management was slow addressing changes in contracts with employees

    Advice to Management

    Empower employee representatives to do more for employees. While my employee representative is very nice, she is unable to address most issues without having to loop in additional contacts who are not nearly as responsive as she is.

    Pros

    I have been with the company for just under five years. This is a young fast growing company with great leadership in the CEO. The internal staff is very friendly and the company hosts great events where you get a chance to meet everyone. There are many opportunities for employment and growth in your career. Salary and benefits package is great with PTO included for most employees.

    Cons

    Communication about changes within the company is poor and it seems there has been quite a bit of internal turnover in the past six months. I also wish Xtreme had a 401k match.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your employees. Understand the strengths of the company and what separates Xtreme from the competition and keep building on that.

    Pros

    They tried their best to get the best salary possible for their employees. Did support outside interests. Was able to work with the organization on and between contracts. Great work-life balance. Was able to work at home most of my tenure.

    Cons

    Organization is geared towards service support engineering, where my career was software developer. Wished they had listened to my request because I did provide a benefit to the organization.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee notices something wrong, listen.
