    Pros

    As a permanent employee, Ascent is pretty great. Decent benefits, an excellent effort to foster company culture and decent people. I feel personally connected with co-workers on the other side of the country. The management is great and the people have a lot of character. The nature of the work has ups and downs, but can be very rewarding.
    For our contractors, we're friendly, accessible and very ethical. We've got a really strong Human Capital team to support you and we are kick-starting a lot of projects that don't benefit us at all, such as seminars and training. We care.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to mind that isn't common to all staffing agencies; sometimes things are out of our control and certain jobs close down or get terminated early. I hate to see a contractor that I've fostered a relationship with and worked hard to get a job for get terminated because the client lost budget. These incidences are far and few between, but each one still stings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! We've got a great vision and great values. I appreciate the culture and the people that I work with. Let's keep growing!

    Pros

    Everything. Ascent is a fantastic place to work. The company culture is outstanding. I absolutely love coming into work every day and everyone in the organization from top to bottom is awesome to work with. The executive management team is fantastic. They are amazing leaders who have a clear vision of where the company should be and know what it takes to get there. Many leaders 'walk the walk' but don't 'talk the talk' - not at Ascent.

    I can't imagine working anywhere else!

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    The work environment/culture is fantastic.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit low with no regular raises to compensate. No front desk/admin at corporate office.

    Advice to Management

    Not having a front desk person at our corporate office is a very unprofessional look.

    I worked at Ascent Services Group

    Pros

    Time to time feedback check and ready to communicate

    Cons

    I had serious issues with my manager at the client location which ascent was aware. I was been fired for no reason and Ascent was not even having a proper feedback for the dismissal. They just informed me 5 minutes before my contract was ended. I had all the email conversations that supported my situation, but at the end it was of no use. NOT AT ALL RECOMMENDED.

    Pros

    Support team, Friendly staff and a laid back butt productive environment. If you're a self-starter you can make it in this industry! The CEO is absolutely fantastic. Recruiters go above and beyond to try and be not just another staffing company.

    Cons

    Pay is fairly average, but the work environment makes up for this.

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing recruiters to grow and develop; we are happy to be apart of the team!

    Pros

    Top notch coworkers who work hard, are ethical and are true professionals. Ascent offers great training for entry-level team members, strong benefits and opportunity for growth. Management has an open door policy and is approachable.

    Cons

    While there is always room for growth, I can't think of anything at this time. This company continues to get better and better always focusing on improving the customer experience and the employee experience.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Good 401K and health spending account

    Cons

    Recruiters lied about what the client base pay was and severely underpaid me compared to my colleagues (similar experience and education) at the same job using different agencies.

    Advice to Management

    Contractors will find out what other contractors are making. BE FAIR. I quit my contract early partly because of anger over my pay situation.

    Pros

    Found me a contractor job for the company I wanted.

    Cons

    They take a ton out of your paycheck. Also, the position they placed me in does't have a good chance to convert into a permanent position. No benefits, paid sick days, vacation days, or holidays so if you have responsibilities, it is not an ideal situation.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to rip off your contractors so much.
