    I have been working at Global Insight as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Recruiter was very proactive, excellent meeting with client to understand skillsets and meeting expectations.
    I was very clear about what I wanted and got it documented, follow through was great.
    Interview schedules were kept, paperwork was less than expected based on other contracting I have done.
    Received feedback after 30 days as requested, minimal contact after the first 30 days.

    Cons

    Benefits are pricey. Build it into your salary. Get your time card in on time. Do not lie about anything, background check is thorough and extensive.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Global Insight in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called by Global Insight on a Friday evening and was told I was an ideal candidate for a position they had locally. After going over my experience, which closely matched the position I was told that the Senior recruiter would like to talk with me. While talking with the more Junior recruiter, I told them that I already work FT and would be more conducive to taking the position if it was a FT position as well. They did not seem to think that was a problem, given that I had work at this company before and left on a positive note. After waiting about 5 minutes the first recruiter told me that I could no be considered a candidate for this position. What I heard is, we need someone to bilk for 6 months while working for this company. I already have contacts into this company and really don't need their help to secure any kind of employment (e.g., 20 years IT experience, MBA, MSEE). All HR agencies suck, this one more so than most others.
