    I have been working at Makosi full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Makosi is a 'boutique' consulting firm targeting client projects in need of experienced staff. Fortunately, Makosi is NOT one of the many consulting firms throwing resumes at job boards. The organization has direct relationships with hiring managers and 'skin in the game' when it comes to delivery.

    Cons

    Health insurance not a best choice. New York State and other sites offer better choices. Not really an issue because many options available.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Empower your best people.
