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

    Pros

    Lots of personal interaction with staff--you don't feel like you're cast out to sea
    Management is always accessible. The personal touch is always present.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have direct deposit of paychecks, but when they come by to delivery your check, they always bring cookies!
    Paid time off is hard to come by--no paid vacation days, even though you get a week's pay periodicaly to compensate.

    I have been working at Clearpoint as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Clearpoint finds contract employees suitable opportunities. I have enjoyed working with both the sales and account reps. Their long-time client that I am currently working with is professional, the work is fun, and I can do it from my home. The Clearpoint staff are attentive and sensitive to your needs. In addition, they are honest, friendly, and easy to work with. It's been a great experience so far and I hope that I can continue to work with them.

    They have a great compensation system. If you work long enough, you can qualify for health care and bonuses. However, you are eligible for the 401K plan right away.

    Cons

    They could use a direct deposit system for paychecks. Currently, they send it out in the mail. It definitely arrives in a timely fashion, but it is still a pain. Haven't had to deposit directly for a long time.

    I have been working at Clearpoint for more than a year

    Pros

    - Very responsive to requests and questions. I love the warm interaction with the staff whenever I have any concerns.
    - I always look forward to yummy cakes they present to us on our birthdays and work anniversary.

    Cons

    - Direct deposit option should be presented to the employee. Its frustrating to go to bank all the time to deposit your salary check.
    - Less holiday perks/gifts than other staffing agency. I see other staffing agency have a little more edge than ClearPoint

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Please include direct deposit as an option for employees. Its not 1980ssss any more. I understand that you want to maintain the interactions with employees but maybe you can instead keep monthly Q&A sessions for contractors to show up and ask questions or share concerns with the clear point team.

    I have been working at Clearpoint full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Clearpoint's mission is to partner with professional for the long haul, not just a single job. Career-focused staffing.

    Cons

    As the speed-to-fill demand increases, don't lose sight of the personal nature of our business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow the Clearpoint talent community and build on the long-term experience for all candidates. After 15 years, you are definitely doing some great things for professionals, whether they are looking for work or in their dream job!

    I worked at Clearpoint

    Pros

    1,000 check every 9 mos.

    Cons

    Never turned over contractors to full-time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promise what you don't want to deliver. Throwing more money doesn't fix the situation of crappy benefits and a terrible 401 k.

    I have been working at Clearpoint full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Truly to many to list, but here are a few for starters: 1) Top pay for top talent; 2) Exceptional benefits including stellar medical coverage, vacation pay, 401K with a generous match; 3) A professional network that reads like a Who's Who from Forbes magazine (meaning MORE and BETTER hiring prospects for candidates); 4) A sincere desire to help candidates further their careers; and 5) Values and ethics that would make anyone proud to be part of the Clearpoint organization ... and the list goes on ...

    Cons

    None! Seriously, none. And, I really tried to think of some!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! You truly set the standard to which all staffing agencies and companies in general should aspire. I appreciate all you do to go out of your way for your candidates/employees -- from the generous 401K match right down to the sweet treats to mark our anniversary with the company. Thank you for making the difference between "just a job" and a "career" with vision and endless possibilities!

    I worked at Clearpoint

    Pros

    Family feel; almost unlimited work / life balance opportunities, almost unlimited earning potential; very little turnover, warm atmosphere, mentoring available

    Cons

    Nepotism rampant; husband / wife-run company can lead to an uncomfortable working environment when times aren't rosy at home; limited growth opportunities because of size

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Family atmosphere is nice, but a more defined line between family/friends and business is necessary to keep a company professional.
