    Pros

    Several assignments to choose from

    Cons

    You only get the assignments if you are the "cheapest" one available. They take 45 days to pay for each assignment. If you cancel and it's not 24 hours in advance they charge you, even if it's an emergency that you had no control over.

    Advice to Management

    Pay better per hour, be more compassionate with last minute emergencies that result in a cancelation of an assignment

    I have been working at Ad Astra Consultants as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good remuneration when deputed to a good MNC on contract term duration. Can trust to be later deployed to a better firm during contact end duration.

    Payment very late for contract employees deputed to mnc.
    Never bother about employee salary and respond rate is very low when discussing about problems

    Advice to Management

    Had little concern about your employees.

    Pros

    They are good to you as long as you are working with them.
    Once you leave they treat you like you are their enemy... even if you can/will do no harm.

    Cons

    They look at every employee with distrust. Never walk the talk. Expect you to work 24x7, not flexible at all.

    Advice to Management

    Just celebrating the founding day won't help! learn to respect people

    Pros

    The Management is extreme knowledgeable and empowers people. They have an excellent track record of scaling organisations
