I worked at Tallan full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Tallan has its act together when it comes to HR operations and perks. They make you feel welcome and valued from day 1. You'd expect a firm that does a lot of on-site staffing to be dehumanizing, but Tallan is a very warm and friendly bunch of people. They've kept some developers and managers for a long time - I think that says it all.

Cons

It's mostly on-site work. Take it or leave it!

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

    Pros

    More transparent than some companies. Some of the people seem to enjoy working there.

    Cons

    My impression was that they often would try to tell you what they think you want to hear, even though what they are saying is not accurate.

    I was recruited as a .NET developer, but was then tasked with manually recording the results of SQL queries into a large Excel spreadsheet. I had to keep track of my time spent on each query in another large Excel spreadsheet. This task was estimated to take about six months of effort.

    I was only told this was the task they wanted me to do, late on the Friday afternoon before beginning work at the client's premises the following Monday.

    During the interview process, I asked quite a few directed questions that should have revealed this task. When I brought this complaint to the person in charge of hiring me he agreed that I might feel "slightly misled". I was even told that I might someday get my "dream" of working on a .NET project.

    Advice to Management

    People can only make informed decisions if you are honest.
