    I have been working at CDI Contractors

    Pros

    Found me a job quickly.

    Cons

    Once I was hired, I didn't hear from them for several months.

    There have been some management changes recently which have resulted in more communication.

    I worked at CDI Contractors as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Once 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 ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together, and make sure the company you're hiring for has theirs together

    I have been working at CDI Contractors

    Pros

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

    Cons

    They 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 ManagementAdvice

    Think about who is on the front line for you. If there is no US, then there will be no YOU.

    I have been working at CDI Contractors

    Pros

    Work from Home most of the time.

    Cons

    No 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 ManagementAdvice

    Communication and open door policy.

    I worked at CDI Contractors

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very 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.

    I worked at CDI Contractors

    Pros

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

    Cons

    had 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 ManagementAdvice

    keep 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.

    CDI has several large customers. This presents a lot of opportunities for assignments.

    Cons

    Not very aggressive to help obtain rates as I would expect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better support to obtain higher rate for senior project managers (over 20 years of experience)
