    I worked at Core Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The organization provides homeless
    services to an underserved client popu-
    lation.

    Cons

    Core Services Group ,Inc engages in
    discriminatory employment practice
    and unscrupulus dealings.Employment
    terminations are implemented without
    good cause.They are believed to be in-
    plemented to conceal some sort of wrong
    doing on the part of the employer.Employees need to be cognizant of their rights and know
    the employment laws as well as being
    aware of corrupt activities in the organ-
    zation such as inventing my offered job
    that did not exist in this organization and
    terminating my employment 2 days after
    my start date for no legal reason,but only
    to conceal their collaboration in unscrupulous activities with those of
    venal characteristics .

    Advice to Management

    The terms of employment must be
    implemented in a legal and just manner.
    Employees should be allowed to exercise
    their rights as members of the protective
    class without losing their employment
    in retaliation or for some unscrupulous
    reason .

    I worked at Core Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros:
    - Employees working are dedicated and good quality. Mostly Indian workforce (onsite + offshore), but they are top notch and quality people.
    - Good place for freshers (only) to learn new technology.
    - Could pay above market (only to exploit later).

    Cons

    Cons:
    - Sweatshop, is all I can say about this company. Last drop of blood from each employee is drawn out until they can... and then fired when there is nothing left. Each and every team is bleeding, sometimes I wonder how clients still stay with this company.
    - Very high pressure environment and always expected to perform.
    - Management doesnt know how to treat employees.
    - Infra (server + network) team is worst affected since last 15 years. Always sweet talks and commitments.
    - They have operations from India and they heavily rely on them. You are still expected to be around 24x7. Dare to miss a call!!
    - Bonus is a joke, like a mirage. Have seen $150k+ people get $1-2k/year against committed 25%.
    - You got to be Single or divorced (or be prepared to) to survive in this company. ZERO personal life.
    - I left within 6 months of joining, had already seen enough from this ~50 employee company.

    Advice to Management

    I guess management already knows, but chooses to ignore. Have seen employees complain everyday by escalating to manager/management but noting happens.

    Pros

    Overall great place to learn, Challenging and demanding work but very rewarding. The experience is priceless. Great coworkers, Coffee always provided, and Free lunch on Fridays!

    Cons

    The business is run in a very poor fashion. I found myself questioning how this company was still around. Upper management needs to wake up and try to keep the good people who are constantly leaving this company.

    I worked at Core Services full-time

    Pros

    Challenging work environment. Good but narrow product set.

    Cons

    The most unprofessional organization ever seen. Surprised there are lawsuits against the companies for employee abuse.

    Advice to Management

    Let a professional management team run it. Or just sell it.

    Pros

    Gained some sort of work experience and learned how to deal with a hectic environment.

    Cons

    This company is structured poorly and management does not seem to care about anyone's personal needs. You have no choice but to work weekends, holidays etc. Also, everyone is quick to point the finger rather than trying to work as a team to resolve the issues the clients are facing. Company is overall understaffed with no intentions of hiring the right amount of people to deal with the workload. Very stressful work environment!!

    Advice to Management

    Hire Hire Hire and start appreciating your employees and how hard you make them work.
