    Pros

    Pros don't exist with these knuckle-draggers

    Cons

    Too numerous to list. But here's a short list. Back stabbers, unprofessional, paranoid. Stupid. Cowards. Jerks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe you guys can get jobs at Denny's because you have no business dealing with professionals.

    Pros

    Very good company nice people, pleasant to work with I would recommend them to any IT professional. they were upfront and personal, their HR was very good at responding. payroll was prompt and on time,

    Cons

    No bad experiences. payroll pay was not once a week, but OK. Gov contracts and employee review is under gov control and is set by contracts when applicable and the company can only suggest to the client on recommendation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    401K would be nice , with employment less then 6 months.

    I worked at Alta It Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Wonderful recruiter. Although she didn't convey the exact conditions I would be entering into, she was an attentive listener. HR questions were answered in a timely fashion.

    Cons

    Recruiter didn't convey the environment I would be entering into. Contractors were treated as second-class citizens. For example, Contractors were not included in project team meetings. The employees were expected to convey instruction back to their contractor counterparts. Also, the "Prime" never sent out emails to the contractors- even "Facilities"-type emails. There was an infestation and an email went out to the employees only on how to prepare the cubicles for the extermination team. Also, there was an earthquake. Again, an email went out to the employees only giving direction on when to report back to work once the building was deemed safe. ALTA IT should have stepped in to correct this communication even if it meant the Prime sent ALTA the email and ALTA would forward the pertinent information to ALTA's employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you place a contractor, it is important to convey the attitude of the Prime toward contractors. If desk supplies are not provided, let the contractor know to bring their own desk supplies or provide it for them. Insist the Prime communicate.

    Pros

    Recruiter is caring and helpful; good entry level position

    Cons

    Position will most likely not go permanent; a promotion would not necessarily mean an opportunity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should work to get employee a permanent position if they are close to finishing contract / finished contract as well as providing better benefits.
