However, I have at long last received my very first "please do the needful" in an email!
    Search on tech Mahindra on this forum and you will understand you should never ever under no any circumstances work for them

    Add Plan-Net to the list. Managed IT Support Services| IT Consultancy London | IT Solutions - Plan-Net


    They wherever possible use imported indian IT staff on very low rates yet charge the end client the sky high rates you or I would have got a few years ago!

    Did they get paid in the end? Those are quite some allegations

They subbed out a lot of work to Blackapple (I renamed Badapple) and some other cowboy Indian outfit whose name escapes me now. Ended up HCL got the order of the boot from the bank I worked for, and we had to go over to another agency en masse or walk. I still get calls from them in pidgeon English asking for updating company provided detailings ? They all work out of india despite coming through on UK numbers.

    Avance - AVOID

    Over a few weeks in negotiation with "Avance" for a role in Austria with HCL....

    Eventually an offer came through..for 580 per day...contract signed and returned..

    Due to start Monday (in 3 days).agency never returned the signed contract...then Text to stay the start date was agreed in the contract was not certain..and not to make any travel plans..refused to give me the name of the end client

    I said..that's fine..I will keep working where I am..

    They suddenly went silent....

    BEWARE..THEY ARE NOT TRUSTWORTHY.

    Me too, three times today, within minutes of each other, all with voicemails, each time a different agent from within Avance, all asking me about the same role. Role is with a consultancy in a big insurer, Horsham based, which has to be RSA, therefore the consultancy they are recruiting for I guess is Accenture. All broken English and very poorly represented in my opinion.
    Another company to add:

    IBU Consulting Ltd, UK -- reportedly in Harrow


    The standard form of the email request:

    ++ short job description ++

    ++ (background highlight: yellow) Please share the following details to consider your interest for this role. ++

    Full Name:
    Nationality:
    Visa Details (If Applicable):
    Contact No:
    Email:
    Current Company:
    Current role (Permanent or Contract):
    Notice Period:
    Current Rate/Salary:
    Expected Rate/Salary:
    Total Experience:
    Joining time after selection:
    Current Location:

    ++ Looking forward to hearing from you soon. ++


    I suppose you can also supply them with your tax number, UTR your mother's maiden name, and name of your first primary school.

    Whatever.

    Another one to watch for DAMCO operating out of Uxbridge or Ealing. I couldn't figure which is which. Phoned up Max £375 per day for senior Java developer contract in London, yesterday, when the median is between £440 and £480 from It Jobs Watch.

    So if you think like a business, and you were hiring people, this is exactly what you will also do. You, meaning, everyone here.

    Generally contractors in here do not think like business, and they always assume it's got something to do with the people who are hired who are to blame, rather than the business that are doing this.
    But I won't blame the businesses either, since that is what everyone will do if they were business, rather than heing bums on seats.
    Just playing the devil's advocate here, to give a balanced view - considering this thread has become an Indians bashing thread - in a professional forum that too , rather than understanding the business motive behind all this that is driving it.
    It hasn't, that's just your simplistic interpretation.

    You insult people on here by suggesting this, seeing as most of us fully understand the commercial drivers behind it.
