    Pros

    Good client companies
    Thorough screening
    ok, but not great,pay
    responsive followup on questions for consultants

    Cons

    Questionable hiring.. the company asks for photo headshots, copies of personal documents, intrusive background checks.The company demands binding arbitration with stipulations that they can sue consultants, or temp workers for damages and legal fees. I had no fewer than 6 different people handling the hiring process each asking for highly sensitive personal information which could be used in identity theft and they had no guidelines for sensitivity of the information or its protection.

    Advice to Management

    Dont be so shady in your hiring

    Pros

    None. They apologize for their bi weekly mistakes. Every single time.

    Cons

    They can pay on time ever. When you inquire about it they "apologize" and then make good on it. Somehow. Like some sort of miracle.

    Now they screwed up my final payroll and they will be paying 30 days late. I'm expected to appreciate that they acknowledged the mistake. It's been 6 months of mistakes and apologies.

    I worked at Real Soft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A very good, team atmosphere.
    Knowledgeable senior staff.
    Hard working Payroll and Accounting department - I learned how to do things the right way.
    Very helpful and friendly co-workers from top-to-bottom.
    .

    Cons

    The building in Cranbury off route 130 wasn't great - very cold, very few places around to go eat. No vending machines. Left just before they moved to South Brunswick so not sure how much better it is.

    Advice to Management

    Rajan was more than a fair owner to work for and treated everyone great. Best advice I can give is to try and have less turnover although you can say that about pretty much any company. Really enjoyed my stay at Real Soft and think the company is in great hands.

    I worked at Real Soft full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good clients / Great mentoring/ training and very good support staff

    Cons

    Looking at most recent review here I am providing my experience. I had the opportunity to work there and distinctly observed elite class (fortunate few) and cattle class (remaining masses) work environment. The owner is indifferent to the needs of cattle class and always side with the elite class.  I had kudos from the clients for my efforts and work ethics, however suddenly elite class colleague made me look like a villain for her selfish act;  Next thing I was side lined from everything. Rather than being miserable, I chose to move on.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid ignoring cattle class employees before they are long gone. Work place smells like sewer; please fix the issue.  Please pay market salary to the employees.

    Pros

    Company has lot of good clients need little more efforts to grow Big.

    Cons

    Too many changes in people/ process which is more chaotic also creating inconvenience to clients creating chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Bring consistency in process and do not change it very often
    Management need to realize practical scenario and should have a steady client process.
    Need to follow practical /proven approach by looking at our competitors.
    Please pay better salary

    Pros

    Nothing to list pros for this company, upper management has no idea whats happening to the employees

    Cons

    The management team runs on one policy , " its my way or high way" . No one bothers about how much hard work you put it , end of the day it has to be approved by them to get acknowledged . As someone below posted in their review employees are divided into elite and cattle class. Many seniors have left the company and the company is surely spiraling down

    Advice to Management

    Stop puttong positive reviews as soon as you see negative reviews , it becomes very obvious for people out there . Instead spend time working on the loop holes.

    Pros

    Great place for a starter who wants some experience.Lots to learn in the midst of the chaos.
    Decent work from home options for only a select few.
    We were actually told to write good reviews on Glassdoor by a certain "upper management"

    Cons

    Every month there is 1 person who is out of the door.Its now become a joke :"whose next".
    You will join on a low salary and you will remain on that salary till the end. They will promote you to big designation names and give you double the work with the same pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Hire strong professionals for upper management.

    Pros

    Through this company, I was able to obtain the necessary recommendations from my managers (on my assignment) in order to secure a permanent position with another organization. I always receive a quick response to my questions and everyone whom I've interacted with is very professional. I would definitely recommend them!

    Cons

    Please negotiate a cheaper health plan option - it's way too expensive.
