    I worked at Svam International (More than a year)

    Pros

    Guest house, salary while you get a project, the chance to come to the US

    Cons

    Low salary, lot of clients are in NYC and they offer 60k to start, try to survive with that.

    They aren't open to negotiations, they will scream at you and they will treat you like you worth nothing...

    401k is a joke.

    10k penalty if you leave the company before 1 year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stop stop stop, just stop the way you make business

    Pros

    They offer GC process. They have a good marketing area. They pay on time. They pay your certifications (only when you pass).

    Cons

    The salaries are bad until you have another offer or your get your green card. They don't easily rise your salary even when you are making a good profit. Sometimes they don't assign a project because they don't do big profit even when is your only choice and they could fire you because you don't get a profitable project for them. You are the best friend while you are assigned to a project, if you don't have they treat you bad and reduce your salary. They rather Indian people over other nationalities. They expect from you to be another Indian employee who just follow orders. They are more like a HR company more than a consultant company at least in USA.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees gives you more business, more open training and communication with the employees. More real benefits. If I were you I would change for a real consultant company instead of be an HR business. I would created a way to measure the level of the consultant and increase the salaries based on their measurable knowledge.
