    Pros

    Great for individuals starting with no prior experience. The campus hire program is a really great place to start right after college. It's great that they try to provide career starting points for individuals right out of school.

    Cons

    Very little organization or communication. HR processes are dysfunctional and confusing. Pay rate is below average for the industry. The company values clients more than employees and it shows.

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees a priority and focus on training and on boarding.

    Pros

    Onshore chances are bright. Thats only one good part i could think off. Is good if you already are a GC or citizen.

    Cons

    Management needs to think more for employees.
    Salaries of the employees should be better. Its high time to take care of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees. And start processing GC. You lost all good people just for GC
