"They try to make the most money from you to find your projects and grill you. You might not meet your manager at all and get a poor rate at the end of the year and you wonder what went wrong and you spent many hours and hard work and dedication to make their client happy but they won’t care. No bounces and almost impossible getting promoted. Pay is not that good."
