    I have been working at Wimmer Solutions as a contractor

    Pros

    Enabled me to contract through their company to work at a large software company. Permitted me to work in a largely independent capacity, but was easy to reach if anything urgent was needed.

    Cons

    Back-office processes are not perfect and mistakes are more frequent than with other consulting companies I've worked with. However staff was quick to address issues.

    Advice to Management

    Wimmer should also focus on increasing rates as they are considered fairly low in the industry, despite compensating employees decently.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Wimmer Solutions as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is excellent, but only because they could milk it out of a third party contractually.
    Hourly pay, which is good for OT.

    Cons

    Bait and switch recruiting tactics - promise good money up front but then take hourly wage away if you want vacation, sick days, etc. For example, $5500/yr pay reduction if you want 12 combined vacation/sick days.
    Terrible 401k plan - 25% of employee contribution up to 1% of your yearly wage and a 6 year vesting plan for a company that does purely contracts.
    Expensive and poor coverage on health insurance.
    Strange marketing games - for example they ask employees to rate them positively on glassdoor to make them look better
