    I worked at iSoftStone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed culture, Good benefits, Good coworkers

    Cons

    Due to the fact that it's a consulting company. It's profit comes from the difference between what the client pays for the staff and the staff's salary. As a result, the pay is not great, below the market rate and definitely below the 1st tier company rate.
    If you are someone who has high self-esteem and consider contractors are second-class citizens, this is not the job for you.
    Even if you do a great job, there is no bonus for you. Your contribution is not appreciated in monetary terms.
    There is no room for talents to grow. Your seniority is based on how long you've worked and not based on abilities. As a result, there is a lot people who have many years of experience but not necessarily capable.

    Advice to Management

    Think about how you could keep talents.

    I have been working at iSoftStone part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can work from home

    Cons

    Other companies offer access to UHRS and they have a system where you get paid weekly like clockwork. Isoftstone has a nebulous payment plan where they claim to pay you within two weeks but you can wait over a month for your money. Payment never goes out at the same time every pay period and they will lie to you about how soon you will be paid. It has taken longer to get paid the longer I've worked for them.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people it's your job
