Pros

1. Salary above industry standard.
2. Good list of clients

I am not able to remember more than this. But they are good in couple of positions.

Cons

1. Poor and impartial in employee management. They never notified whats going on about contract.
2. Need to fight for salary while exit.
3. Never found they had good relation with their client although they claim they have.

Advice to Management

I found wide communication gap between consultant and his assigned employee from Solomon while working on client side. Atlease mine case was not good. I wish you focus on this regard in future.

    Pros

    Compensation was better than expected. Team I worked with were very supportive. Those who possess the specific skills necessary (conversational skills with an inquisitive mind set) can do very well in this particular position. Great place for a recruiters. During the economic downturn, the business was extremely profitable so employees had job security.

    Cons

    Management is not understanding. They will berate you without hesitation. I've never seen people cry so often. Your work is always questioned. Work training is non-existent. Individualistic culture with the higher ups which creates miscommunication and work flow conflicts very often. Recruiters are excellent at recruiting but terrible at leadership. I wouldn't recommend working here if you are looking to build on your career. Management focused on profits and not capabilities which creates conflicts with deadlines and unrealistic expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to support and build from within. Take on less work and better manage client expectations. Look to build for the long term.
