    Pros

    Every time you come across any problem and issues, call your manager, she will start to get your problem solved as soon as possible.

    Cons

    They should host more events to let the employees belong to them meet each other more often. this is good for information sharing.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe can have more opportunities to meet there employees face to face. in this way, they can get all of the information updated and solve the employee's problem as soon as possible.

    I have been working at Optimal CAE full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Just slightly better medical benefits

    Cons

    This company will place you at OEM or suppliers but that is where their responsibilities end. The employee gets very poor support in getting a raise or when having any problems with the onsite employer. All this company is interested in is to get a cut of your salary for doing minimal work. This and similar companies are the conduit to provide cheap foreign labor mainly to Ford, GM, Chrysler.

    Advice to Management

    The owner started this business as a minority company. Support your employees that are contracted out. Stand by your rhetoric when you hire a new candidate.
