    Pros

    If you are a student with your visa expiring and you're desperate to stay in the US then ASTA is the right place for you. But remember, they will treat you like a slave. ASTA provides a 5-7 week accelerated Business Analyst training that covers the basic duties of an Business Analyst. At the end of the training you are interviewed by the Director of Operations (mick interview) to see if you're worthy of a job.

    One thing to remember is to NEVER pay for the training. ASTA cannot guarantee you a job, there fore you should not pay since they will make at least 35-40K by slaving you around. Pay is 25$hr but thats literally one third of the actual pay. I found out my position was paying 120hr and all I was getting was a lousy $25 per hour. ASTA employees are shameless and they lie right through their teeth. ASTA is a company that will face serious fraud charges pretty soon.

    Cons

    ASTA sends their employees resumes to choose from. Once the candidate chooses that resume, he or she is to memorize the resume line by line and have stories to back up the experience. The experience is usually 5 to 10 years on these resumes but in reality you have zero to none! You are asked to fake it till you make it. Some have faced criminal charges due to the severity of the situation. Be careful!

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to ask everyone to fake it and lie please pay them the money they deserve. CEO Prab needs to be a little less greedy perhaps? If the position is paying $120/hr then pay the employee $50-$60hr. And save as much as you can for a really really good lawyer, because you will probably get sued pretty bad soon.

    I have been working at ASTA CRS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working for almost a year now.

    Good Company but pays little. Excellent workers. Honest and straight forward and true guidance. I got placed fairly easy in appox 1 month. Proper grooming and assitance before interviews is given and the HR Recruietrs give us some assitance before the final Client Interview by making us talk to Asta's Senior Employees who have worked in Similar Domains.

    Active support in Marketing as they have Cooperative,sincere, workoholic Marketing Team.

    Cons

    Low pay and strict with Company Policies which is good in a way.

    CEO is a great guy who will take the time to speak with you personally

    If I had to choose one, and I can only think of one, it is that we get paid only once a month. Twice a month would be better :)

    Pros

    NONE. Fake resumes and what not.

    Cons

    Company run by Hyderabad people. This is a H1B fraud visa business. They recruit candidates who are in desperate need of jobs, example, H1b transfer candidates or foreign students. They train them for month or two in business analysis or QA and then they start to market them. They prepare false resumes with 8-10 years of fake experience and put companies like Bank of America, Capital One, Goldman Sachs etc. NOTE: These resumes usually doesn't have address of the candidate. These candidates won't have LinkedIN profile either. If these candidates have years worth of experience they should have linkedin profile. They usually give the initial phone interview for the candidates. They are then trained for face to face interview. Once they get the interview cleared the prime contractor with call IQLOGG for reference and the people at IQLOGG will lie that YES the candidate have worked for years and they have done background check on them. Once they are able to get a job the candidate is paid between 25-28/HR. Rest of the money is kept by IQLOGG. They have a parent company called ASTA CRS which basically does the same thing.

    Advice to Management

    YOU ALL WILL BE CAUGHT ONE DAY.

    Pros

    Great Marketing team. I barely spent any time in between the projects as they are very efficient in getting interviews and getting candidates placed

    Cons

    Pay is too low. Relocation charges are a joke. Also the accounts and immigration dept need to be more efficient.
