  1. simple and straight forward

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Astrix Technology Group

    Pros

    simple and straight forward way of getting a contract job and they look for alternative positions as well which helps...

    Cons

    have not really tried to see if conversion is possible and are generally hands off after you get the position

    Advice to Management

    contract workers don't want to be contract for long and want to be converted to full time permanent positions so they need to keep on it

  2. I do not like the company! They promise to do things at start and they end up denying it. that is most frustrating part.

    Pros

    Good amount of personal days off and vacation time, if you can get them approved for when you want to take time off

    Cons

    Ostracized for speaking up for inequality and illegal behavior. Haphazard training. Company values keeping contracts at all costs, including devaluing employees and their concerns

    Advice to Management

    There are many things that need improving, and a few pointers and tips are not going to help this company sincerely change in a positive direction without changing upper management attitudes or changing the people running the company.

    Pros

    The pro is the company is based in NJ, so if your state has laws that forbid you to go overtime they will ignore it and not pay.

    Cons

    I came in with a lot of optimism but I quickly found out Astrix employees are always trying to cut hours short because they hate the company and how it has screwed them over their hours.. The lack of loyalty for the company has put me off. The HR rep is non existent. There is no regulation over how many hours people do, or bosses put in. The hours are never equal to what the company thinks the employees are actually putting in. No room for growth. You could switch the job titles around in the company and they would still not be relevant to what duties are actually being assigned.

    Advice to Management

    Re-examine yourself. Get rid of slackers.

  9. Solid

    Pros

    I worked as a temp through this company and overall they were great. Answered calls and emails and advocated on the side of their contractors when necessary.

    Cons

    Unless you get in contact with them, most times you won't hear from your rep unless you haven't submitted your time card.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with your contractors periodically to make sure they are happy where they are or that they are not having any problems.

    Pros

    Contract work which can work with your schedule. Good screening procedures. Some jobs though temporary are ongoing for years.

    Cons

    It is a contractor, therefore ability to move into a company as a regular employee may be limited or unavailable because of contract. Very little contact and that is usually initiated by the employee. Security of the jobs is not guarenteed and does reflect the changing needs of the contracting company.

    Advice to Management

    More hands on contact with both employees contracted out and contracting company. Information exchange is important in keeping the contracts viable.
