    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.

    I worked at iSoftStone part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of anything that working for this company will benefit someone.

    Cons

    Long hours for extremely little per hour and then won't pay even a small invoice. They asked for a PayPal to send money to, did that. Then at the end of the month which is typically when they (are supposed to) pay, they ask for a bank account to send money to or they will suspend my account with them and not pay. Did that. Well, it's the 6th of October and still no money has been deposited. The amount due was only $38, but I guess that was too much for them. I passed every test just fine, I adhered to every rule during the evaluation process and they still won't pay. If you like playing childish games with management, then this is the job for you. If you want to get paid, do something, anything else except work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, follow your own rules and guidelines.

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, strong HR.

    Cons

    Too much turnover in sales team. Very little communications after starting a customer site. The Non-Compete agreement was too stringent.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to retain't account managers. Fix the restrictions in the non-compete if you haven'the already.
