    Pros

    M Squared recruited me for a great contract IT PM position (12 mo) at a fortune 500 global high tech company. It was my first experience as a contractor and it was a great experience working with them. The recruiter and my engagement manager were very professional. Specifically they communicated very quickly, clearly, plainly, directly and always moved very quickly to the next steps of whatever activity we needed to accomplish. For example, it was a very fast process from when I was first contacted until I was hired and started working (about 2 weeks). Also, as the end of my contract approached my engagement manager was very good about projecting whether there would be an extension, starting about 2 months out. When it was confirmed it would not be extended by the client, he let me know 30 days in advance. This gave me adequate time to arrange for my next contract gig. They have a great partnering style of working with you. I would gladly work with them again.

    Cons

    There were no cons to speak of. I wish they had more openings that are a fit for me, but my location and work type are not in their main areas of focus.

    Advice to Management

    As this was a consulting company I was contracting through, I did not have much interaction with their management other than my engagement manager which is mentioned above in Pros.

    Lots of busy work
    Flexible schedules

    Create stronger succession planning programs. Better pay...but who isn't going to say this? We always want more.

    Pros

    People do what they say they're going to do. There's a high level of integrity and professionalism. You will find smart people who work hard to run a solid company. Generally speaking, clients that know M Squared love M Squared.

    Cons

    Despite 25+ years in the Bay Area the company struggles with identity. M Squared is not a well known name in consulting.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in younger talent in fresh areas of expertise.

    I worked at M Squared Consulting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Unique offering. Great co--workers. Good pay and benefits. Nice location in financial district of SF...although the building was old an funky!

    Cons

    Somewhat confused about value proposition to the market...is it a consulting firm, or is it a staffing firm, or is it both?!!!. Fairly political, with some "old timers" holding a lot of power. At the time it was owned by a South African holding company (this is no longer the case, as it was recently sold to Solomon Edwards!)

    Advice to Management

    Figure out your market position.
