I worked at StackSurfers full-time for less than a yearPros
I was referred to Stacksurfers by a friend when looking for a position in 2012.
They didn't have anything for me at the time. After a pretty extensive discussion with one of their Recruiters, I was told they had a clear picture of my requirements and would contact me immediately once they had a fit.
I wasn't surprised by this as I specialize in Machine Learning; Bayesian Probability Algorithms, backpropogation, etc.
True to their word they contacted me about 4 months later with a position. Minus the commute being a bit of a grind it was perfect for me in every way.
I've been happy, and incredibly busy, at my new company for over 5 months.Cons
None that I can think of.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I tend to look at staffing companies with a bit of disdain. In my mind I consider them a necessary evil; a middleman that gets paid for being in the right time at the right place, but not for providing quality customer service. Stacksurfers has proven, at least to me, that my industry has a legitimate need for high caliber placement services.Positive Outlook
