    Pros

    Nothing - literally nothing is good about this company

    Cons

    They "hire" recent graduates, and people without citizenship, "train" them how to do code and request that they lie when they apply for jobs about previous work experience

    Advice to Management

    Everything positive review you read about this company is 100% someone who works within management and is trying to promote their own lie. DO NOT JOIN/TALK THIS COMPANY. SCAM

    I have been working at ecalix (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The BA trainer was very responsible and had planned the training well.

    Cons

    The marketing isn't as good as I expected. I feel that I am not getting a lot of Job Descriptions and Vendor Calls. Currently only two marketers are sending me job descriptions and most of the JDs I got from one of them don't match my skillset so I could apply to any of them. Basically I am only applying through one marketer right now.

    Advice to Management

    The other marketers should be more active helping students with OPT status.

    Pros

    My advice is never join this company because it will ruin your life. These people prey on newly graduates by posting job offers that look legit on school career websites.

    Cons

    everything is a con. from their recruiting team to the so-called promoters and once you are in their program they get you into believing you will land a 60,000 dollar a year job. Not! so don't do it, especially if you are a college grad because these people don't give a (i can't use a bad word because it might not be posted) about your degree which is real and good honors. My advice is to never listen to the recruiters because they are a bunch of liars and only want to bring you in on this resume lying scheme where you lie in a resume about projects you have done which is totally not true. Don't be like these people and I hope they get caught.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is close your company down because you are preying on innocent people by forcing them into becoming dishonest people, which is what you are. I hope you get caught with your lies and a big penalty or fine is put upon you.

    Pros

    If you're in the know about the tech industry, then this is a great company compared to other ones out there because they offer medical, dental, and vision healthcare plans to its consultants. The training is actually very good, it may not make a lot of sense to freshers but once you're in the industry, what the mentors teach will start to fall in line. As with most things in life, you get what you put into the program.

    Cons

    Getting your first project may be very difficult if your English communication skills are not up to par. The initial shock about resumes may deter people, but you have to realize that a lot of the industry is playing a dog and pony show for cheap labor.

    Advice to Management

    I respect you all, keep listening to freshers to try and meet their needs. Maybe hire better quality marketers.

    Pros

    Nothing that great that I would consider a pro.

    Cons

    Very money-minded and they don't care about you or your professional growth. They pay very less.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair to your employees and don't take more than you give. You are getting paid because of them.
