    I worked at The BOSS Group for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule is decent. Majority of the people are great people to work with. Good central location in downtown Houston.

    Cons

    The work is not consistent. If there’s no work available, you don’t get paid. If you’re looking to have a stable 40 hours of work for week after week, this isn’t the organization for you. Priorities are often rushed with issues ranging from resource limitations, not fully defined requirements, etc Leadership roles does not always appear to directly support goals of the shop. The shops appears to always be in a... state of putting out fires and are beholden to client partner’s fluid needs. Client partner employees behave in a superior manner to consultant employees Flexibility in schedule means if you’re taking time off, depending on your ‘work/position class’, you won’t be compensated for it. Career growth is non-existent. The work is very transactional. The work not very fulfilling. There’s no official remote work policy

    Advice to Management

    Its understandable that consultant leadership needs to address client partner concerns and needs as efficiently as possible, however it typically comes at the cost of killing morale for consultant team. Please change

    I worked at The BOSS Group for less than a year

    Pros

    They contacted with major companies.

    Cons

    I got hired and promised that it's going to be a 6+ months contact and that I'll be 40 hours of work. But during the start of of my third week, I was let go because they didn't have enough hours to bill the client. I left my salaried position and for contacting job at a prestigious organization and to be let go because I was told lies during the hiring process. I started in the beginning of November and before... Thanksgiving I was Iet go. Thanks alote Boss/Cella you just made holiday with no job.

    Pros

    The Boss Group (also referred to as Cella) seems like a pleasant contracting company when you first start working at a client company. They hire you with a promise of full time hours for 6+ months. The coworkers are pleasant and they seem to respect prior experience. Pay rates appear to be decent, assuming they are going to give you the work that they promise you. It appears at first that The Boss Group allows you... to work from home when you want. However, working from home means waiting for weeks or months without pay. Nothing is as it seems.

    Cons

    The Boss Group's business model is to hire great talent and string them along without pay. Soon the employees realize that they will never get 40 hours of work a week or even 10 hours. The only employees who work more than 20 hours a week are managers and team leads--it takes a lot of time to develop the lies that string along employees. Working downtown Houston means driving into the office, paying for your own... parking to attend meetings that managers cancel (often without any warning). You will be sent home without pay even if it is the manager's fault. Time worked in the office will not even pay the expense of parking. If you spend more than a few weeks waiting and believing the promises of future work you will go bankrupt. The Boss Group hires an endless cycle of naive contractors who take your place in the queue for work at the same time they tell you work is coming.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that if your employees are not getting work/paychecks that nothing else matters. Don't hire new employees if you don’t have work for them. No one voices grievances about no paychecks because they are hoping to get work in the future and negativity reduces their changes. Don’t waste your time with funny hat days, unpaid lunch meeting and surprise ice cream. Find assignments for your employees, ice cream... doesn't pay the bills.
