    I have been working at Estrada Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Estrada is like a big family and everyone is always ready to help and support each other.
    Estrada sponsored my H1B visa and the company was really clear and honest at every step of the process.
    The company is always doing the best to find good clients for the employees.

    Cons

    The only thing it`s bad is the fact we are consultants and sometimes projects are short making us moving from one state to another. But its something bad for any consultant in any consulting company.

    Pros

    Its almost 2 years since I have been working with Estrada and I should admit that its been a wonderful experience through out. They clearly set your expectation and you know before hand what can be expected so that there are no surprises later. Always and employee friendly company and easy to reach out for any of your employment related queries and always very prompt with their responses. Its not very easy when you are on your H1B VISA with all your documentations to be kept updated and Estrada has been very accommodative in providing every documents as and when required. Overall no complains and feeling very fortunate to have been associated with Estrada.

    Cons

    Keep up the good work and strive for more employee friendly initiatives which would help the company to grow more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Estrada Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Estrada Consulting provides excellent opportunities to find challenging work throughout the western states. With the corporate offices in Sacramento, I have been able to find an excellent opportunity near my home that provides a great work environment and challenge. The team at Estrada is very hard working and able to assist with questions about benefits, prospective opportunities and growth opportunities. Everyone is accessible and willing to help when you have employment or project related questions. If you are good at what you do and want a good life-work balance Estrada Consulting is an excellent choice.

    Cons

    The benefits are currently limited, but this is offset by the work-life balance offered. Like any small company that is growing additional options are slowly being introduced to provide a comprehensive employment package.

    Advice to Management

    Management is closely involved in most all aspects of the active and prospective projects. This helps employees focus on the specific requirements and tasks of their projects. This coordination is key to the growth of the company and is what has made Estrada Consulting successful. I would recommend Estrada continue to build on this strength to enhance their ability to conduct projects effectively.
