    Pros

    If you are one of the select few who can get into the right department (i.e. if you have a world class college degree with excellent marks in ALL disciplines and multiple years of verifiable, relevant work experience) then this company is for you. It is rated one of the best places to work for a reason. However. . .

    Cons

    . . .for the other 99.9% of us, you will be treated like an ant. If you are a contractor, you are a dime a dozen and you feel like it too. Your performance is constantly under vicious scrutiny and there is hardly any room for error. You can have a phenomenal month or even multiple phenomenal months in a row, have one bad month, and be shown to the door. No warning. No probation. No negotiations. No kidding. And it doesn’t matter how long you’re there. Training seems to be in short supply as well. You can think you’re doing everything right and still be in the sand traps, and you won’t know until the verifiers give you the results back from your work which is only after you’ve submitted 3 or 4 sets that you’ve done wrong, and probably more sets than that if the verifiers are tied down with a project and can’t grade your work (this happens often). The verifiers are poorly trained too as they constantly make glaring errors (which reflect poorly on you if you don’t catch them). Your only hope is that your team leader will catch these errors which also may not happen as they bring in new, inexperienced ones every few months.

    Advice to Management

    Train your people! It will be cheaper for you in the long run if you spend more time on training. It will also reduce your turnover which will in turn boost the morale of your team. It’s difficult to overtrain, but even if you do, that’s better than undertraining in every way imaginable
