    I worked at Mastech as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck but there is a caught with that too.
    You get some experience with a large established company.

    Cons

    The term recruiter used to be NOT a four letter word but it is sad that the majority of the world thinks recruiters are SNAKES.

    This company is the company that defines snake.

    I got recruited at 70k for 2 year contract. After 1 year, I was interviewed at another company and was offered 90k. I approached management and told them I want to stay here but was looking to split the difference. They told me that I was at 105k with them. I told them no I was at 70k.

    Mastek cooked the books, the company accused them of fraud and they settled out of court and I took the new offer.

    I get it the recruits gets their gravy/cut but 40k and then hiding is UNETHICAL.

    People, if you work in IT there are lots of recruiters avoid these people.

    Advice to Management

    I think you may have gotten too big and have lost the human touch. You have some shady people working for you and they are profitable for you but ethics is in the process of a comeback.

    I worked at Mastech (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I could think of.

    Cons

    List is endless
    - Do not pay on time.
    - They will use you , treat you as money making machines. Will terminate your employment the day your contract ends with the client.
    - I was not paid last month salary after my contract ended.
    - No relocation benefits. If asked they will take the relocation cost from the employee's salary which they call it as advance salary.
    - Very less pay. Below market average.
    - False promises about bench period 2-4 weeks while joining.
    - If you are on h1b please do not join this company. No bench period and do not care about the consultants once the project is over, will not market their resume with speed and urgency.
    - Recruiters, hr managers are liars. They will sell you all lies from very first day.
    - They will not pick up your call once you are done with the contract.
    - Marketing team is really bad.

    - Typical bodyshopping.

    Advice to Management

    Your company is running because of consultants. Understand your business. Consultants are your asset. Value them. Stop cheating them.

    Pros

    There are no Pros worth considering.

    Cons

    Made a contract disappear, continuously lied to by multiple individuals in the Human Resources and Sales departments. Made me an employee after telling me I would be a contractor. Billed me for 3 months of insurance that I was not never to that I had. Lied about multiple background checks done incorrectly. As an employee I was supposed to be first in line in new projects, when current project was terminated early, they told me that I was no longer an employee and let me go. I'm looking forward to seeing them explain themselves in court.

    I worked at Mastech (More than a year)

    Pros

    Have a good understanding of requirements for bringing workers into the country. Were helpful going through the visa process and ensured that all the documentation was correct to allow for a smooth approval process

    Cons

    Really only work with you as you start a new contract or to extend your current contract. Do not do any work with you to transition you to a new contract as current contract draws to a close.

    Advice to Management

    Need to work better with contractors to ensure high quality contractors remain in you system and you do not loose them as current contracts close
