Contractor experience with Alta IT Services

Software Quality Assurance (Former Employee)
Herndon, VA

ProsWonderful recruiter. Although she didn't convey the exact conditions I would be entering into, she was an attentive listener. HR questions were answered in a timely fashion.

ConsRecruiter didn't convey the environment I would be entering into. Contractors were treated as second-class citizens. For example, Contractors were not included in project team meetings. The employees were expected to convey instruction back to their contractor counterparts. Also, the "Prime" never sent out emails to the contractors- even "Facilities"-type emails. There was an infestation and an email went out to the employees only on how to prepare the cubicles for the extermination team. Also, there was an earthquake. Again, an email went out to the employees only giving direction on when to report back to work once the building was deemed safe. ALTA IT should have stepped in to correct this communication even if it meant the Prime sent ALTA the email and ALTA would forward the pertinent information to ALTA's employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you place a contractor, it is important to convey the attitude of the Prime toward contractors. If desk supplies are not provided, let the contractor know to bring their own desk supplies or provide it for them. Insist the Prime communicate.
