    I worked at eTouch Systems as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good clients with big names like Google and NASA. Low overhead staff augmentation firm with capacity to pay market rates.

    Cons

    Does not communicate with contractors unless forced by client, does not follow through on promises. Did not pay as per contractual terms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the capital resources or processes in place to honor contractual obligations. Defaulting to contractors is a quick way to spoil your reputation in this small market.

    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.

    Pros

    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

    This company seriously SUCKS!!!

    I worked at eTouch Systems full-time

    Pros

    Has a few good contracts with Google and Nasa

    Cons

    - Upper management becomes deaf to employee requests after a while.
    - Way below market average salary.
    - No career growth
    - HR is extremely slow and you have to constantly nag them to get your stuff done. No timely response.
    - Lots of frustrated employees, resulting in a very negative work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop pretending to be deaf and listen to your employee's needs. If they require a raise, give them, or work with them to figure out where they are falling short and help them improve. Be more involved. Lots of extremely laid back, lazy and ignorant upper management

    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

    They let you work independently for the employer.

    Cons

    Promises met and not kept, contacted only if they want something from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your contractors with respect. They are the ones bringing in the money for you.
