    Pros

    They leave you alone.
    Salary not bad, but there is no bonus.

    Cons

    There is not much in terms of team approach within the company. Each Consultant is on his/her own, even within the same client's project.
    Not a lot of projects available. If you project ends, or budget is cut, it is not likely you will be staying employed with them.
    They have you sign an agreement supposedly preventing you from working for their clients or competitors, although that is actually illegal in the state where they are incorporated (misdemeanor).
    They make you find your own travel and living arrangements, and provide a fixed monthly stipend (if the client pays for it) for T&L, which is often not enough. Better suited for people already living at a client site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a team approach and allow Consultants to collaborate on projects.
    provide incentives for Consultants to bring in leads for potential projects within the client.

    I worked at iQuasar full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are two Pros about this so called Company:
    1: They pay salary on time.
    2: They train freshers pretty well and help them reach a level in their career where they can get better jobs easily and 90% of the employees leave the company after a year or two. Recently 90% of the Software Developers have left this company

    Cons

    No real projects to work on
    No latest technology, they use .net 2.0 while the world is using mvc 4.5
    Not a single product developed in 10 years of existence
    No value for employees due to which people leave after a year or two for better opportunities
    Nepotism practiced to a great extent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no Management here so no piece of advice...This Company is in dire need of a Strong and Well Educated Leader..Someone who knows the how things are done without being unethical and biased and someone who doesn't kill merit by adopting to nepotism.

    Its rival companies(1-3 years old) in J&K are doing much better than it. Take some cue from BQE, how it became an international brand, they value and trust their employees and above all have a Great Leader as the CEO...Unfortunately this company never valued its people and people stopped valuing the founders...as a result the Company is a Failure Today :(

    Former Employee - Recruiter in Srīnagar, Jammu and Kashmir (India)

    I worked at iQuasar full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Talking About Training: For US Recruiters at entry level is best. They Nourish you to become a good Sourcer.
    Working Environment: Family Environment. Employees feel home in all means.
    RPs are supportive. Offers good compensation and good facilities. I must say they are one of the best corporate in the region. Have A Direct Telecom and Life Science Engineering client.

    Cons

    Employees: Few bad communicators/ ill Managerial Skilled are there and unfortunate is that they might be leading
    Difference between a Client and Vendor is not known
    No Strong Sales team for client acquisition. Sales Team's focus on mass emailing than cold calling.
    Recruiters Hard Work evaporates in the air because majority of the resumes gets submitted through 1st,2nd and sometime via 3rd layer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push So Called Sales Team To Cold Calling which is believed to be the basics of this job.
    Acquire Clients Not Vendors. To Get Clients in less time it is suggested to Hire a Sales Guy with recent few years of Staffing and Augmentation Experience than Recruiters. Business outlook for the next 6 month is down if Sales Team is not buckling up.
