    I have been working at Kitestring Technical Services full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very competitive salaries in the area. No micro management. Work is client-focused. Very helpful with processing of work authorizations - whether it's a visa or even a GC request. Several projects available, so in case one ends then they can try to place you in another one. Being a full time but charging per hour has its benefits, especially since overtime is charged to the customer, which is not a very common thing in today's workplace environment (most employers can get free overtime from direct employees).

    Cons

    Feels like it needs some more integration between the contractors. Work place experience tends to be affected by client's management. But this may be common with all contracting positions. For example, some managers might get you a macbook (with work from home capability), others just a virtual machine or client desktop.

    I have been working at Kitestring Technical Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working on getting to be more than just a go-between. More events where for meeting up.

    Cons

    Not much paid time off. Timesheet accounting was state-of-the-art in the 80s

    I worked at Kitestring Technical Services for more than a year

    Pros

    LJS is a family run operation and they're all great people who are good at supplying many fundamentals to their associates.

    Cons

    After doing two non-consecutive contracts with LJS, it seems they specialize more in short-term project contracts, so when the contract is over, you're out. Their entire operation is centered around one client, which limits their options. If you want stability or continuity, go elsewhere.
