    I worked at Helios & Matheson IT full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    you can have a job if no one is hiring you...

    Cons

    A worst body shopping company, there is no investment in their employees, whatsoever. Consider yourself lucky if there is one get together in a year. Beware, no one knows them but they will speak high about themselves. Look at their web site, that's how good they are. Their web site speaks how serious they are about investing in themselves. Unethical business practices, do not trust their promises. This is not for those who are serious about their career. Their business is as simple as putting bodies at client and get the billing going.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks, invest in your employees. Get out of body shopping mentality and do some real stuff for your clients.

    I have been working at Helios & Matheson IT as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros for working with H&M. I've had nothing but horrible experiences with them starting before my employment and following the months after I resigned.

    Cons

    -Contract took too long to finalize (about 4 weeks)
    -They don't appreciate their employees
    -They'll take as much out of your paycheck just to stuff their wallets
    -Agreements are never fulfilled
    -No matter you're work experience they'll make you feel unqualified and worthless

    Advice to Management

    A company isn't successful without employees. Learn to value your workers and compensate them appropriately. Stop trying to pinch pennies to save a buck.

    Pros

    1. Good salary hike if you are looking for a jump from previous company
    There is no other Pros and if you are joining for salary hike.
    Get the salary hike and leave the company as earliest before H&M terminates you.

    Advice to candidates : Its very difficult to chase these people so don't delay to get hard copy of your relieving letter and PF transfer process.

    Cons

    This company hires the professionals and place them at client locations as contractors. So, you will get the salary till the time you are billable in that specific project and if the billing stops you will be terminated without any prior notice.
    1. False promises & Commitments to get permanent on client payroll.
    2. Permanent job is also like contractual job, any time you can get sacked without any prior notice.
    3. Will make you cry for salary, leaves, joining bonus and relocation allowances after joining the company.
    4. Will give you undetermined leaves without salary.

    Note: Beware of such fraud companies and never join such companies for initial salary hike.

    Advice to Management

    There is no management and no HR teams in this company. Try to call on contact numbers given on website and check it out yourself.

    I worked at Helios & Matheson IT as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Instant job... And the best ones - just name it

    Cons

    Many to list, listing a few

    1. Once purpose solved they remain unreacheable
    2. Fake promise to get another job once current is gone
    3. Play with candidates
    4. Do not fail to provide untrue promises and never keep their promises
    5. Only if you are hired expect things to be normal, your salary, exit documents, all turns hopes

    Advice to Management

    Ugly and bad at consulting. Escallation doesnt work. Outsourcing at its worst

    Keep a balance between money and good-will. Too much and no good is sure to raise things to ground someday

    Pros

    I would suggest even if you don't have job, don't join this company.
    They all are fraud. Including HR and all.
    They will never reply to your phone or Email.

    Cons

    No salary , No F&F settlement , No exit documents .
    H&M has deducted my Income Tax on regular basis but they didn't paid it to Government, finally I paid the Tax amount.
    They will not provide you the Form-16 also.

    Advice to Management

    Zero Stars...
    Don't cheat to people.. You will go to hell..
    Refund my amount...
