    Not really many to list, unless you are desperate for a job under any circumstances

    Cons

    Disorganized, upper management to site management. Focus on EOC and nepotism, rather than highly skilled professionals, even when demanded by client

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps rebuild from the top down with a focus on customer and customer needs rather than diversity and H1B1 tax breaks
