    I worked at Amaris full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Benefits and Pay are decent if you negotiate well upfront.
    - Pretty much work independently with your client with little oversight.
    - If you have a chance to work with a great customer, you can get some great exposure.
    - Lots of travel opportunity if you're young and not tied down.

    Cons

    - Management very inconsistent (3 managers in 6 months - first one easy going and approachable, good reviews, stayed in contact. Last one never responded about offers they initiated and much stingier on raises.)
    - Lots of talk; little action from management
    - No investment in employees technical growth
    - Business development let to ride on the back of employee contacts instead of having a sales manager drum up business
    - Constant push to sell more services outside current projects when over 100% committed to a customer and didn't offer to propose ideas to alleviate workload to permit the actions.
    - Refused to invest or support existing business until technical staff generated more business.
    - If they aren't able to generate business, you're out of a job when your contract runs out.

    Advice to Management

    Follow through with what you're promising.

    Take a more holistic look at your markets and invest appropriately. For example, if you have a concentration of a specific type of talent, use that talent to sell more services and hire additional consultants to support current projects. In new markets, where you have no reputation you need to focus on a smaller set of services to market yourselves and support your existing consultants.

    If your constantly sales pitching your own consultants, it seems like you're trying to convince them of something they should already know. If they need convincing of how "great" the company is, you're doing something wrong.

    Pros

    Dynamic company, good interaction with coworkers all ober the world

    Cons

    Claiming to care about people, not true at all. Only goal is to make a lot of money. Not transparent at all. They will quit your contract as soon as they found a solution that can bring more money in. International comoany (good thing) but the english level is sometimes really low.
