    Professional, good clientiele, numerous opportunities, Good training, benefits.

    Tough negotiators, They go with the bottom of your expected salary range and will not negotiate much.

    Advice to Management

    Think of employees as associates and not commodities for trading. Maintain a decent margin on the rate not try to milk the customer for the consultant on site. Instead reward the consultant with a better rate.

    "How this company can still claim it's a premium brand mystifies me. And yet companies pay their rates!"

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Better-than-average pay rates. Access to some of the smartest people. Frequently changing client list and work opportunities. For a straightforward contract opportunity, they make it very easy.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions and communication to consultants. "Sales" approach when dealing with employees trying to keep them working with Taos. Dishonest and misleading communications to clients frequently in a "fake it until you make it" approach. Limited "bench" opportunities means you have to accept a role you don't want, just to get paid, and then can't be pulled off for the job you actually want or are qualified for. Catch-22.
