    Advice to Management

    Please include more practical training stuff

    Pros

    Sweet commitment before you join which turns out opposite once you join them.
    Gaurav (CEO) himself made 10 comments and gives 5 star rating on glassdoor and hides out genuine comments of people who rates him as one star :). (page shows 10 out of 12 comments and remaining 2 genuine comments are hided which are still visible on google)

    Cons

    Poor marketing
    Poor pay rate
    Unprofessional people excepting Pradeep
    Long wait to get placed (5 months in general)
    Trust less people and they make feel the same

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more professional
    Salary should be sent on time
    Need to stick to commitments made at time of joining
    Have trust on employees the same way they trusted you
    Dont spoil OPT graduates career life with 5-6 months of bench stay

    I worked at Validation Associates as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good rate of pay, good client list.
    Good apartment to stay while in training and marketing phase
    Ok option for people who will do anything to stay in the USA

    Cons

    - Fake resume with fake experience will be marketed to clients
    - Fresh out of school, don't worry, you will be marketed as an expert with 4-5-6 years experience
    - Will be asked to delete Linkedin or strip it down of all details, however clients are not fools, they can see your page in web cache.
    - The CEO and owners and their HR personnel entice you with amazing stories, but they're going to be caught in wire fraud, visa fraud, and multiple other felonies and go to jail soon. DOJ is going after these body shops with ferocity. Don't get caught in the crossfire.
    - All these 5 star reviews, not one negative one. Even the biggest multinationals have plenty negative reviews, but this consultancy in the middle of nowhere has no negative reviews?
    - At client site, no help will be provided, you will be left to your own devices. Plus you're a new grad, how will you cope with the expectations that you were hired as a expert with 5 year + experience ?

    Advice to Management

    Don't fool upcoming fresh graduates who are desperate with your delusions of grandeur and involve them in your criminal ring. Have a conscience !
