I worked at Prodigy Resources (TN) as a contractor (Less than a year)
1.) They seem to work hard to fill positions (Not necessarily a good thing, see the cons I listed).
1.) Either the agents are clueless to the hiring company's actual needs, or they're misrepresenting the gig. Not sure which it is, but neither is good for contractors. 2.) Staff is very eager to place you and close the deal, but is disinterested in whether or not it is a good fit. 3.) If it's not a great fit, will tell you what you want to hear to get to commit and close the deal. 4.) They're more interested in protecting their relationship with the company than supporting their contractors. 5.) Zero benefits. 6.) The Contractor Agreement they insist you sign strongly favors them over the contractor. It has some shady clauses such as you will be only paid minimum wage if you end early or fail to give notice, etc. Proceed with caution, have a lawyer review the contract before signing anything.
Advice to Management
1.) Understand the problem your client is trying to solve. 2.) Work with client to help them understand what they actually need and how that may align with the marketplace. 3.) Be more honest with your clients. 4.) Stop using shady clauses in your contracts to penalize your contractors; remember, we're your 'face' to the clients and the only reason your company exists.
