nice work if you can get paid

Be wary of this company as they use a third party company to pay you. Should there be a dispute they will take zero responsibility or assist you in any way to be paid and simply tell you to contact the third party company.




you will be paid late if you are paid at all

Great company, occasionally get interest from clients. Very part term

From time to time someone needs specialized help that i'm qualified to help with, probably only about 5 hours a quarter. However, i'm compensated extremely well for this time. It's very low pressure when deciding whether to take a project or not.

It is a pool of lost souls

Needed but highly efficient with no system to deploy the right person to any particular job. In other words their inventory of assets is not evaluated or deployed in a manner the meets customer expectations.

Consult on HDD Industry

This was a contract basis job and was only part time as inquiries from clients were forwarded to me to either accept or decline. I worked from my home office and conducted business via teleconferencing. As requested by clients, provide insights and opinions on current and long-term status/future of the HDD industry and the industries mechanical/electronics supply base. Continual industry research and analysis to determine trends in technology, manufacturing, supply base and markets

Not enough to comment

Not enough experience with them to comment. I reserve judgement until I've received more work from them. It would be imprudent to comment before then.
