    Looked good at the beginning, then turned into a total, disorganized mess

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe initial recruiters were pleasant and cordial, company paid for my TWIC

    ConsOnce the job got started and turned into a mess, nobody at CDI wanted to talk to me then afterwards their claim of 'we really need people like you' turned out to be almost a year with nothing before a sudden email about a job halfway across the state

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your act together, and make sure the company you're hiring for has theirs together

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Random

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFrom the time I submitted my resume to securing a contract position was fast and stress free.

    ConsThey are not about the individual contractors who work for them, rather they focus on their client base. I'be been with them for several years and still make the same base salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThink about who is on the front line for you. If there is no US, then there will be no YOU.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    CDI Corp treats you like a number. No communication and dishonest.

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsWork from Home most of the time.

    ConsNo communication. CDI Managers are cluless and no help. No one would help you or pint you to right direction. No one wants to work with you. You have to do everything for yourself. Do not expect any rate increases, even when the customer you work for have increased your pay to CDI, CDI WOULD DENY.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication and open door policy.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Involved in business insights and play more BI data.

    SAS Programmer (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGood place and nice building at Center manhattan, fast business insight analysis work flow, execellent coworkers, improved communicative skill with marketing people, played huge data base.

    ConsLess communication in person of working remotely, group managers replaced so often to lag the project and speeding up later on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVery good leadership for CDI. Frequent communication from the leadership. But need to keep their eyes on the position at CDI contractors and their group or project managers.

    IT Project contract work, that was renewed at end of contract term

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)

    Prosvirtual home office environment.
    payrate competitive
    accessible via phone calls for communications

    Conshad to use the internal CDI travel office to make business travel arrangments without input on schedule and vendors, and required to stay at hotels different from the project team member's hotels.
    constantly changing hotels that were booked from week to week.
    occassional lack of updates on contract renewal/extensions

    Advice to Senior Managementkeep in touch with contractors with occassional emails and provide ability for contractors to sign-up for an open jobs email broadcast. Allow contractors flexibility to book their own travel arrangements and to select hotels where other team members are staying.
