    Ability to work directly with the CEO

    Too much emphasis on higher education for advancement. The admins and support staff don't get the respect they deserve. They are looked at as a luxury and overhead instead of an asset.

    Don't take so long to make decisions. Too much red tape. Need more communication and transparency among the teams.

    Pros

    People are really good to work with.

    Cons

    In Persistent US, there is no job security even for full time employees. As long as you are in a client project and billable you are safe. The resource allocation team doesn't even try to find you a project matching your skillset.
