    I worked at Onward Technologies Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    no pros whatsoever, nothing positive. Save yourself from the embarrassment of having to work here.

    Cons

    Where do I begin, management is horrible and doesn't care about anything, not even profit. Instead their main concern is playing politics, and acting like the big guy on campus, which they can't pull off because they are all terrible at their job.

    They have no business prospects, no relationship with their clients, sales is the most apathetic group I have ever seen, months will go by without any new business, but if you try to talk to them about it they get so defensive and act like you're personally attacking them.

    They don't understand the staffing industry in the slightest, they don't understand how to communicate effectively with clients, how to arrange for interviews, how to onboard candidates, and the worst part is they think they have a clue.

    Advice to Management

    Resign from your positions and find another line of work more suited to your particular lack of skills.

    I worked at Onward Technologies Inc. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Office location is the only thing that I can think of, unfortunately nothing else at all comes to my mind

    Cons

    Boston office has very poor management, absolutely don't care about their employees, very disrespectful, absoulutely zero "fun life" in the office, no team outings and team building, no stable client base, a lot of micromanagement. Working there, I had to be very careful about watching my paychecks and very often had late payments for my work related expenses. And not even once got an apology for that. They still owe me money.

    Advice to Management

    Please come out of your offices more often and talk to your employees, get to know them better and make sure they are happy.

    I worked at Onward Technologies Inc. full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The only advantage of of this company is that you get the opportunity go get onsite as they file your H1B.

    Cons

    1. They will ask a heavy amount of money to be deposited in order to file your H1B.
    2. Very secretive company. Nothing is transparent. Emails are either not replied or take days.
    3. Illegal and fake H1B approach.
    4. You will be asked to give interviews once you get into US. This is because the clients mentioned in your H1B are fake.
    5. The company's motive is to make use of you for around 2 years and then throw you away.

    Advice to Management

    Have some determination to grow.
    Treat your employees as your strength.
