    Pros

    Better salary than other body shopping companies.
    More chances of getting Green Card filed.
    Good projects and a lot of good colleagues

    Consistently downgrading in almost all areas.

    Open your eyes and check what is going on around you.

    Fix the HR department by getting some professionals.

    I have been working at eTouch Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flat management structure. CEO is very good person.
    Less HR process oriented company.
    Good development community.
    Month end Lunches and year end party.

    Cons

    No employee development.
    Career growth and training is completely employee's responsibility.
    Very short sighted management.
    No Software development processes.
    Not very good overall benefits.
    Company is in existence for 17 years and still run like a startup (benefit wise).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not be short sighted.
    Invest some money in people and infrastructure.
    Think long term and create some practice area. Ask your people to contribute to it on company's time.

    Pay consultants salary on time, not picky about timesheet approval etc. Recruiters very responsive and start process soon. If looking for a staffing firm to handle your contract, no complaints at all.

    Cons

    No benefits, very minimal interaction post contract. Told they will raise hourly rate immediately but didn't do so

    Pros

    Nothing positive about this company, most of the people are mediocre. No career growth and no one to guide.

    Cons

    They make you work at remotely far client locations and expect you to come to fremont office very often. They delay in all process, no timely response. Above all they have one year bond in form of Liquidated Damages which is as huge as 20K $.

    Pros

    eTouch is one of the best place where I worked. This is company has values and respect the employees. We need to appreciate the CEO to have the great culture. but I would like eTouch to spread their practice in another sectors like Data warehousing and etc.
