    Pros

    Many well established clients within the bay area. Company culture is friendly and easy going, free snacks. Monthly company lunches provide opportunities for employees to interact.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be very minimal but depends on the team.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training existing employees.

    Pros

    The commitments they make before you join are awesome...!!! The clients are excellent and you get to work with some great companies. Good opportunity if you dont care about who you are employed by as long as you are at a good client location.

    Cons

    Once you join them... your career takes a steep downward fall. No career guidance, no career growth. If you are at a client side placed by etouch... you will be a forgotten entity and your life practically becomes a nightmare on so many different levels. Whatever you plead for falls on deaf ears and you are left at the whims and fancies of individuals because there is absolutely no processes involved. A severely dysfunctional, unresponsive and very very rude HR, a completely disgruntled and political middle management is excellently complimented with an ignorant Upper management.
    Whatever the salary you join with shall remain stagnant for the next many years and the appraisal process is a joke (literally). Your immigration (if applicable) status will hang by a thin thread. Most folks are stuck here because of some random immigration issue.

    Advice to Management

    Lack of communication, Ego, Politics and back biting is simply causing so much damage to actual people with actual lives and careers. Take care of your employees, their career growth and steer the company with some direction... Good luck.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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
