    My first experience with a staffing company, it was good, but the contract ended early due to the customer's budget cuts

    I worked at Ascendum Solutions full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, the staff kept in contact and let me know I was not alone even though I was far from the home office.

    Cons

    The insurance cost is prohibitive for a company of this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the insurance cost a little less for the employees and they will be extremely grateful.

    The most progressive IT company in the Cincinnati Area

    Current Employee - Senior Architect in Cincinnati, OH
    Current Employee - Senior Architect in Cincinnati, OH

    I have been working at Ascendum Solutions full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Probably the only company in the region that truly understands the latest technology trends like Social-Mobile-Cloud-and-Analytics; Rewards creativity and innovation. Extremely approachable and honest management, including when they make mistakes! And third is simply the access to all of their group companies and leaning all they do. Ideal for extremely competent people. I love the commitment I see with all the new additions to the senior management from the owners.

    Cons

    A very tough place to really impress the management/owners as they all have created so many IT companies and successes...It can be intimidating if you cannot hold on your own; it is a place that is changing on a daily/weekly basis, so sometimes that becomes a challenge to keep up with... salaries are at market or slightly above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your top 20% people and stop worrying about all the people who have left and screwed you .. specifically many of your large share-point team...

    Pros

    If you are the right gender and are willing to play the game you can go far

    Cons

    Very political
    Very gender biased/sexist
    definitely a "family owned" type of business
    Focus on staff augmentation/body shop rather than technology
    You can make good money until you make too much in their opinion, then the deal will change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reach outside of the Cincinnati Good ol' boy network. Value strong women. Invest

    I have been working at Ascendum Solutions as a contractor

    Pros

    They leave you alone to do your work.

    Cons

    Bottom line is they do not care whether or not you are happy or unhappy in your assignment, whether or not the client is happy, as long as they are making money off you being there, there you will stay.

    They pretend to listen to your suggestions on how to improve things, but nothing ever changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See the above. They do not listen to suggestions/advice, even if they have heard it repeated by 500 contractors.

    Pros

    Very helpful colleagues, wonderful work environment, one of a very few companies which play background music during working hours in the work area (instrumental usually), festival celebrations are good.

    Cons

    Worst HR policies and Worst Management, disappointing hikes, salaries for freshers are like paying for labors.

    Please update your senior management, update payscales and HR policies.
