    Pros

    Benefits were good, salary was ok....

    Cons

    Company seemed unwilling to remedy situations where there was blatant signs of employee hostility. Seemed more willing to cover it up when it was reported. Some individuals were put into PM positions without apparent necessary skillsets. PMs at times were dishonest and lacked integrity when it came to letting employees know when their task orders or contracts were coming to an end.

    Advice to Management

    Make integrity a prerequisite before putting PMs in place...

    I have been working at XLA full-time

    Pros

    The salary is competitive and they give young consultants challenging work.

    Cons

    1. HR has no standard operating procedures and everything is communicated verbally and changes frequently and/or policy is created on the fly.
    2. Management cares only about making the client happy and not actually producing positive change in the organization.
    3. There is not transparency about how long your contract will last. I was told in the interview that the contract with the client had a couple of more years on it. On my first day, I found out from my corworker that in fact the contract was ending in 6 months and we would be out on the streets if it was not extended.
    4. Due to the lack of transparency, there is a lot of fear among employees and misinformation. People are mostly not happy with their jobs.
    5. Did I mention that HR has no procedures? I have sent countless emails trying to find out what is going on with my benefits, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Get some SOPs in place.
