    Pros

    Great flexibility. If integrity, honesty, respect, and kindness are values you require in an employer, this company is for you!

    Cons

    Smaller company means less promotional opportunities. However, this is also a "Pro" because you are given encouragement to run with your own ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show transparent, forthright communication on strategy.

    Pros

    Flexibility and work/life balance. Variety of assignments and companies. Opportunity to work for different companies and experience different company cultures. Vacation homes are a great benefit. Management is very strong, professional and friendly. Contractors are treated very well by Certes management and office staff.

    Cons

    Assignments that are boring and not very challenging. Working as a contractor on location at client companies you tend to be isolated from other contractors from your firm. Advancement opportunities are limited.

    Advice to Management

    More opportunities to get together with the other contractors in the company.

    I worked at Certes Financial Pros as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Got me one good paying contract role. Told that "good things" would result from the engagement. Nothing good came out of it. Nothing.

    Cons

    Treated me like garbage when I took another contract job over one of their's. Was told I'll never work for them again. They threatened to "blackball" me in the industry. Dohkay! Oh no, not that.

    Advice to Management

    None cause you probably trained your money grubbing recruiters. They even ambushed me on a conference call (when they said they'd blackball me) without my knowledge that others were listening in. Classy move!

    Pros

    Highly regarded as partner to their clients. Opportunities to see all different kinds of businesses.

    Cons

    No vacation accrual: payed when you work, not when you don't.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
