    Advice to Management

    Management: Not everyone is trying to take your job or wants your role. Try actually supporting your employees instead of stunting their growth so that they can remain in their place.

    Open up more dialogue and have effective communication, secrets and insecurities just breed low morale

    I worked at Client Network Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is the only pro here.

    Cons

    Everything else
      No work-life balance (like really, been forced to work 16 hours a day, including weekends for 4 months straight, because of unrealistic deadlines set by management)
      Too much internal politics and drama.
      Job security has also been questionable in the recent few years.

    I worked at Client Network Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, and nothing else. Dead end job otherwise. Do negotiate when they offer any salary, whatever they are paying, its not worth the demanding work.

    Cons

    No time for personal life. They make you work 16 hrs a day, 7 days a week. Projects are poorly managed and everything is in disarray.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop promoting people with most experience to management positions without evaluating their proficiency.

    Pros

    They believe in socializing among themselves.

    Cons

    Company caters to east Indians because they request rock-bottom salaries, they are controlled with Visas and do not hear, speak or do no evil. They hire only white management to shield their India and Pakistan descent to get Federal contracts. They do not promote blacks unless they are in trouble with EEOC.

    Advice to Management

    Be open culturally.
