I worked at Lodestar Systems (More than a year)
Recruiter (Chandrika) was great. She was diligent, followed up on things, and always returned phone calls and emails. I felt like she was a true advocate.
The contract was abruptly cancelled by the customer (due to drop in oil prices), and I had no recourse, even though I had signed a year long contract.
I worked at Lodestar Systems full-time (Less than a year)
Like minded 'just out of college' grads who have a burning desire to succeed.
Everything else really! We were lied to by one of our 'senior' consultants who turned out to be a co-owner of the company. They nickel and dime you for everything and throw consultants into the fire and hope one or two stick. My advise to anyone reading this: Please do your research before joining companies like this. You are worth more than you think. Don't get sucked into this.
Advice to Management
Focus on your employees and pay them more. If you focused on that, you wouldn't have such a high turn over rate.
