    I have been working at ConsultUSA full-time

    Pros

    Company provides excellent employee training benefits in the project management (PMP) or business analysis (CBAP) knowledge domains.

    Domestic (USA) focus, no off-shoring of IT projects.

    Cons

    Company is expanding beyond its Mid-Atlantic/Mid-West roots but currently there are very limited positions in West and Southwest with client assignments.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop national business.

    I worked at ConsultUSA as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was good given nature of the work.

    Cons

    No active support from management when it came to personal issues. We were left to our own devices when it came to interpersonal disagreements.

    I worked at ConsultUSA full-time

    Pros

    *They are willing to train entry-level employees and give them a shot fresh out of college
    *Main office has great employees who help make it a fun place to work
    *Quarterly recognition of top employees
    *Focus on health allows you to visit gym during lunch hour and membership is half paid
    *Pot lucks, office holiday parties, and yearly employee retreat were things everyone looked forward to

    Cons

    *No room for growth, upward movement is given to the receptionist over employees who have been there for 5+ years
    *You are ranked against your coworkers, looking only at quantity, not quality
    *No flex schedule is available and work from home was not an option
    *Small number of paid holidays
    *Employees in the main office are all salaried-exempt, so no OT is paid. A misclassification for most positions in the company according to the law

    Advice to Management

    *Allow flex time for employees, most employers are making this change to allow for more work-life balance
    *Stop telling job candidates what they want to hear instead of telling them the truth to get them to take the job
    *Celebrate successes of employees, even if small, rather than criticize

    Pros

    Unable to think of anything positive to say about this company

    Cons

    BEWARE!!! I was fed false information regarding my contract to hire position. Was told my rollover salary was negotiated then when I arrived to the job found that there were no discussions with ConsultUSA. Spoke with multiple attorneys who all agreed this was a case of deceptive recruiting.

    Advice to Management

    You should consider hiring professionals on your team and provide them proper training on how to handle recruiting and contracts.
