    Pros

    The client is a great place to work. The local leadership team works incredibly hard, side-by-side with the project managers.

    Cons

    Be cautious when negotiating salaries. The salary advancement is not as promised. People get their healthcare creds, then move on to places that pay more appropriately, which means lots of knowledge walks out the door frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Outside of Kansas City, the company is not a big fish in a small pond. Salaries have to be competitive, which is why turnover is so high.
