They really your foot in the door at a lot of large companies. Found me by chance, and quickly put me to work.
There are some issues with the language barrier occasionally, but they're not totally deal-breaking.

easy to submit time sheet, paid every 2 weeks, accumulate vacation, not onsite so no micro management - no punching a time clock, just electronically submit time.
everyone is very hard to understand due to strong accents. Staff reads from a script each time the call - even to check in. Quite condescending to not have a real conversation - even responses are scripted.
Advice to Management
be better listeners rather than "check the box" type discussions. If you call me and ask - be ready to listen to my response rather than simply thinking about the next question you will ask me.

Great bunch of people. Management are friendly and approachable. If you enjoy working on Open Source, it's great really.
Distributed teams across timezones can be tricky to deal with, and sometimes the work can be quite a tedious grind (depends entirely on the current projects though).
