    Pros

    Benefits are better than average for a vendor and there are clear policies on what is acceptable and what isn't, for example around travel. Trying to implement the 'OneMSCI' approach which hopes to bring greater benefits to the end client.

    Cons

    Prepare to put in the hours and most personal development is secondary compared to achieving company and "shareholder value" goals. Lack of ownership from some workers in EM Centers who focus too much on doing the absolute minimum in order to say that they have done something remotely useful for a client.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management focused only about achieving "shareholder value" and too many potentially client value added jobs framed out to EM Centers.
    When the clients are in the DM Centers.

    Interview

    Unprofessional and almost careless HR; was left rather unimpressed. Follow up emails are not replied to and ignored.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. Very focused on narrow areas of previous experience I found   Answer Question
