    I worked at Avocado Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If they need you , they shall offer good money.

    Cons

    Resort to lies to hire people on the board. Even if they don't have long term projects they shall hire you for a "fix term contract " for as long as 1 year . Which is neither a contractor role nor a perm position. To me they offered 1 year fix term contract , when they only project visibility of 6 weeks. And after six weeks they just called me to tell not come to office ( by giving me just 1 week notice).

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying .

    Pros

    1 dimensional mindset. Either you are making money for me or you are not making money for me.

    Cons

    You have a job if you are making money for them. The promoted flexibility and family environment is only for a selected group.

    Advice to Management

    You won't have a job if you are not making money for them. You don't have the promoted flexibility and family environment if you don't belong to a selected group.
