    I worked at Mindteck full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not too much to say here. I was hired with promises that were not upheld when it came down to actual signing on the dotted line. I was on my own with very little interaction.

    Cons

    I needed to have emergency surgery and found out while still on recovery that instead of the insurance being covered and to be taken out of future paychecks that it was payable on demand. I didn't have any paycheck since they insisted this was a "pre-existing condition" and weaseled out of paying short term disability. The HR individuals demanded immediate payment or threatened to make sure the insurance was canceled back to last day of work which was prior to the surgery. This threat was to the tune of thousands of dollars. When I asked for more time until I could secure the funds to pay, I was terminated back to my last actual working day. What kind of company hits you when you are down and physically unable to work. Worst group of people I have ever dealt wth over my working career.

    Advice to Management

    What management? I was never supported and just left in place at company in Pittsburgh.

    Pros

    Strong list of client, pleasant co-workers.

    Cons

    Lack of direction from executive team with no clearly defined process in place. Extremely political environment that led to a revolving door (Voluntary and Involuntary) when it came to middle management. Highly metrics driven that severely limits ability to think out-side the box

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what it is you want to be... Staffing/Recruiting or IT product development/consulting. Can't successfully run the company with a one-size fits all business model.

    I have been working at Mindteck (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am a full-time, non-contract employee. My pay rate is decent, not the highest for the type of work I do, but definitely not the lowest, either. I am not micromanaged.

    Cons

    There is no support from higher ups. The company itself seems to not have a clue where it wants to go or how it wants to get there. Everyone is expected to want to become a sales person for the company (and I don't mean just sell the company because as an employee you like it and think it's a great place to work, actually become a sales person no matter what your strengths or what you were hired to do.) There is no obvious set plan in place to grow the business other than "we want it to grow."

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want this company to be. Put a plan in place and stick to it. It will take spending money (on employees and on business resources) to get that done. Moving everything to India because it's cheaper is not the way to grow and thrive in the US.

    Pros

    Pays on time and you may get onsite opportunities for very less salary, those are only pros in this company I can think about.

    Cons

    Poor Salary. They send engineers with very poor salary onsite and then for years don't increase salary. Country like US and high cost states such as California it becomes too difficult to manage even food under this company. At the same time this company blocks your documents so that one can't change jobs. Pathetic condition of engineers in this company.

    Advice to Management

    No use of any advice to management, all managements are well aligned towards exploitation of engineers. I spent about 4 years in this company and I can say it was horror experience of my career.
