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

    Pros

    The pay and on boarding process was great.

    Cons

    The client Deloitte did not provide the time keeping resources as planned causing confusion. Deloitte had control issues and mismanaged projects without accepting accountability.

    Advice to Management

    Document everything related to Deloitte management control. Saicon had no control Saicon as sub contractor blamed.

    Pros

    A staffing company that aspires to be a professional services company, pays median salary, hires a lot of H1B employees - both its own and other staffing company H1Bs.

    Cons

    They have very poor quality operational management skills. The operating environment is very chaotic and produces lots of errors and poor quality. There is lots of fighting among family members who work in this company and the family members are allowed to cause suboptimal corporate performance. They push the envelope ethically to win business and this will probably catch up with them eventually. The key to the growth of their federal government business has been to develop relationships with federal procurement managers and contract evaluators by hiring them and their family members after they retire, or while the contract proposals are being evaluated, and to offer financial benefits to federal managers who evaluate the JMA contract proposals favorably. They are probably within the letter of the law, though definitely violate the spirit of the law.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to compete, fair and square, so your shenanigan are not required.
