    I worked at Crawford Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people here were very nice to work with when the communication was transparent. Nice location in the South Bay Area. Succinct documentation processes.

    Cons

    The corporate-level employees were often difficult to get a hold of when a question needed answering. Also, the consultants could sometimes be very demanding yet do not give a lot of direction if they needed help completing a task.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication lines open and transparent. Understand that there are a lot of daily duties and piling on the special projects can be overwhelming.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Offers contract work for a handful of high tech companies on their somewhat limited and concentrated client list

    Based in SV.

    Cons

    Impersonal.

    No loyalty once your contract work is completed.

    Not competitive pay. The word on the street by both candidates and clients confirms/is widely known
    They do not offer or give raises when requested and even after years!

    Owner operated- owner and mgrs. money-driven and want their big margins.

     Not loyal to contractors. Lots of turnover.

    Contractor has to pay for limited benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Share your relatively large margin with your contractors who do the work.

    Take the emotionality out of your management style.

    Hire more men.
