    Pros

    Pretty much process oriented firm for someone supplying contingent workforce solution. They stick by their promises.

    Cons

    As far as getting a consulting assignment is concerned, it's mostly on entirety depends on the individual and there is almost no help from company.

    Pros

    Good employee he will learning how to fight for his rights , how to struggle with the worst management .

    Cons

    this just like any other consultancy, they dont have their own projects / clients, they might help you in marketing yourself, you need to find one yourself then they will pay you below average in the market. and as per their policy there is no thing called appraisal , so dont expect any thing like that, one more the even they dont have direct deposit when i was there, not sure now. you have to collect your pay check and deposit by going to bank.

    I am sorry you had a negative experience. I did however want to clarify that we do have an Annual Appraisal process. This was introduced 4 years ago where we seek feedback from our clients as well... More

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

    Pros

    They can file your H1B if you are outside US. For initial few days they provide accommodation in a decent place

    Cons

    1. They do not have any project, you have to depend on your skill and luck.
    2. They do not provide medical insurance until you are on project which is a huge risk
    3. They asked me to put false review in glassdoor while I was with them and on bench.
    4. They do not process your green card even after promising the same.
    5. Do not have any profile marketing skill. They want you to take risk and if you gain something, they will capture lion's share.

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome and helpful. There are lot more things to learn.

    Cons

    Bad management and owner is worse, this is very unfortunate that all those employees get no respect for their contribution.

    Advice to Management

    Please respect your employee and let them speak, they deserve to put their opinion on the table as well, otherwise this company will be turned to signboard outside of owner house.

    I have been working at Data-Core Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company has long term dedicated employers who work to make the company more successful and profitable. Work culture and life balance is very good. They use latest technologies like Hadoop and BI/DWH. Compensation may not be a primary focus rather than good position like me and I am working as a BI practice head for last 20 months.

    Cons

    The company needs to have a better business decision compare to last ten years analysis based on competative technologies like .net and Java.

    Advice to Management

    Business Intelligence Technology is not unknown to everybody and need more marketing & Sales via trade shows, Recruitement mailers, Consultancies and other avenues for customers to be attracted to Data-Core Systems Inc and sales prospect needs to grow accordingly with Bigdata, BI and data warehousing technologies. Data is everywhere but information is nowhere.
