    Chipton Ross is fine - they are mostly hands off, which has its benefits.

    I have been working at Chipton-Ross full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I really can't say much about Chipton Ross, as they were really just the contracting agency I technically worked for, while I spent 100% of my time on the client site.

    Cons

    Their medical insurance plan is crap. You can do better by buying private insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice for you to have some type of employee relations team that reaches out to contractors on site every couple of months or so - to at least check in and see how the job is going. You could at least pretend to care about the people you are "employing" - I mean you probably have a bill rate of about double my pay rate. The least you could do is have someone contact me every now and then to see how I am doing.

    I worked at Chipton-Ross full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A little more money but benefits are practically non-existent.

    Cons

    Benefits are practically non-existent, no 401(k) match, fewer holidays, no medical coverage and extremely expensive for WA state employees. The money made did not compensate for the out of pocket expenses paid for by other employers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with employees once in a while to check in with them and see how it's going. A note on a piece of paper and a shirt that doesn't fit at Christmas doesn't count.....

    Strange Experience

    • Comp & Benefits

    Former Employee - Marketing Analyst in Burbank, CA

    I worked at Chipton-Ross as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    They literally hired me with a phone call. They called me, told me that they saw my resume (where, not sure, as I had not sent it to them), asked me if I was available, and told me to be at Warner Bros. in Burbank the next day. 3 month contract lasted almost a year.

    Cons

    When this contract ended, I was then told that they now required a 4 year degree to be considered for any further positions. I had an AA degree at the time. Something was not right here. First, they hired me sight unseen, which in and of itself was strange, and now I needed a BA/BS degree to remain with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real.

    I have been working at Chipton-Ross as a contractor

    Pros

    Good pay, always paid on time. Staff gets back to you very quickly regarding emails and questions.

    Cons

    The benefits listed on their site do not apply, none of them. It all depends on which defense contractor you work with, but they offer nothing! No Holiday pay, no vacation pay, nothing! I have worked at smaller temp/contracting agencies that had these basic offerings, and I mean basic! To be honest, when thinking about all of the stuff they don't offer, I am surprised they even offer to pay you. My advice? Look for other contractors that are staffing for the same position in which you might be applying for, as you will probably get a better deal then from these guys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Join the 21st century and start offering workers something competitive.

    I have been working at Chipton-Ross as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    The job paid more, but I had to pay for my own medical insurance without any compensation from CR and it was expensive.

    Cons

    benefits not great, there was no interaction from CR to me after I was hired to work at Boeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need better medical benefits for WA State employees, need to interact more with employees beyond accounting for pay

    Contract work for Boeing. Survey answers are more about Boeing than Chipton-Ross, they dont really do anything for me.

    Pros

    Stable. great work balance. Not really micro-managed and flexible work hours

    Cons

    No room for growth. Management hasn't changed in 10+ years. Hourly rate is laughable.

    I have been working at Chipton-Ross

    Pros

    They have a good reputation with the company that I'm currently looking into. They were able to get me placement in there and that was good.

    Cons

    You generally have to pay for your benefits and they are a la carte, maybe that's what you want in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've enjoyed being a part of the company and would appreciate more company wide events even though we are contractors for a larger company.
