    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.

    We are working in an young and fast learning company. You grow up, you consolidate your knowledge and you have fun at work.

    I worked at Amaris (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance and nice colleagues.

    Cons

    Managers are professional liars and sellers, especially with consultant.

    They're gonna tell you that Amaris has a large number of projects around your country while that is complete false and all of the contracts ( Literally 97%) are body renthals where you're sent on your own at a customer for at least 6 months, without almost never seeing your manager again.

    Amaris is a Piramid scheme made to enrich itself and its Managers ( They get a bonus whenever they hire someone and place him at a customer, which is what they do 24/7 ).

    No real career evolution is possible here unless you're doing it on your own.

    Overall the worst work experience of my life.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs way more than one advice
