    I have been working at Artech Information Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They will pay you on time.

    Cons

    They cut your pay mid contract otherwise they will not renew your contract. No benefits at all, just hourly wage. They will offer you other positions within their company for lower pay than what you currently receive. Email correspondence addressing employee's concerns can take months to address.

    Advice to Management

    Provide commensurate pay and benefits.

    I have been working at Artech Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    Other than a timely paycheck, I find nothing PRO.

    Cons

    Deceptive hiring practices! Hired for a certain contract amount, no disclosure, then once hired, forced furloughs and pay cuts. First a whopping 20% pay cut for 1 month, then +5% for 4 months! I doubt the recruiters or go-between got pay cuts. No paid holidays or vacation. What little ACA medical plan there is, is expensive and covers almost nothing. You are just a slave/body. No feedback from employer, they do not even know you exist, other to tell you about another pay cut.

    Advice to Management

    DISCLOSE, DISCLOSE prior to hiring!! Maintain your contract salary as hired!

    I have been working at Artech Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    The company is friendly and keeps it's time reporting system simple and easy to use. The website is also easy to use once I get in it.

    Cons

    The company does not offer any vacation or sick time to contractors that are long term. I was told it was not cost effective for them.

    Advice to Management

    Check in more often with your contractors and offer them paid time off if in a long term contract position.


  8. Low Hourly Rate, Pushy Recruiters, and Bad contract experience!!

    Pros

    If they call you about a company that you really want to work at, get in and try to get yourself hired quickly. Only use Artech to get in!!

    Cons

    Artech called me about a contract with a major US organization while I was on vacation. From the beginning the recruiter was pushy, their account manager was equally pushy and there was no negotiation on the rate which I tool a 40% pay cut just to get into this major corporation in the hopes that this employer would hire me. Then the paperwork and onboarding was ridiculous. I think I signed more paperwork to get this contrract than I did when I bought my home! There are no benefits, no paid time off and no holidays. Other contract agencies at least offer paid holidays. Artech does not. The contract turned out to be a horrible experience and I left once my contract was over.

    Advice to Management

    Pay decent market rates for your contractors and don't be so cheap!!!

    I have been working at Artech Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    Aside from the location of their newest NJ office, there isn't any.

    Cons

    Racist; Shady; A Sweatshop; Poorly Managed; Deplorable and unprofessional recruitment tactics; Noncompliant Immigration and wage rate processes; Constantly audited and fined by clients, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly and judge them on the work that they are assigned. Not by ethic background, gender, orientation, creed or the like. And, pay your employees the same rate that is reported to your clients and not a lower amount.

    Pros

    Great company, well respected, a gem in an otherwise crazy business.

    Cons

    Many don't understand the recruiting business and because of that they don't understand how Artech can sometimes be restricted in how they recruit candidates and the rates they pay.

    Advice to Management

    Management is very good.

    I worked at Artech Information Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I honestly have been trying to think of one for the past 10 mins and realize that there are none. Only work with them if you are desperate for short term.

    Cons

    Took a long time to get the position. Salary is low due to greedy recruiters. They like to have you agree with a rate and then re-negotiate with you to a lower rate afterwards. Recruiters are non-responsive after hire. Benefits are terrible No PTO. False promises.

    Advice to Management

    Recruiters/company need to be less greedy.
