    I worked at Halcyon Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Some of management can be engaging and do well in communicating to employees. They keep hard data on how well the company is doing and have frequent discussions on how to improve/change/etc.

    Cons

    There are select managers that are NOT strong in communication (positive or negative feedback) and don't engage with their employees. They don't provide clients promised and leave too much emphasis on a system that isn't reliable as a consistent revenue-gainer.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to shed dead weight- bring in some new talent for the role. Someone with high energy and fresh ideas!

    I worked at Halcyon Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Helped me get H1 visa and placed me in a project.
    - Didn't interfere in my project.
    - Doesn't micro-manage
    - They helped me a little bit when I was in between projects. But it wasn't enough.

    Cons

    - Didn't get my salary on time. Sometimes they will send a mail that this month your salary will be late due to delay in payment and "thanks for patience and understanding".
    - One of my colleagues got fired mysteriously
    - It used to be a body shopping company. They had some connection in networking/telecom companies and used to place consultants in telecom/network projects. Then they got blown away by the .com bubble bust in 2001. After that they changed gears to Microsoft technologies but still body shopping.
    - Initial project was good but after that there was no help. I had to find projects on my own in monster and careerbuilder and subcontract through them.
    - I don't like body shopping companies. It's an evil byproduct of American capitalism and short sightedness in the industry. Halcyon is another body shopping company that lures innocent people from India with promise of lucrative jobs in America.

    Advice to Management

    Need to strengthen the foundations, execute projects within the company instead of body shopping. Need to build more customers and move up the value chain.
