Great benefits - even for part-time contractors!

Marketing/Communications Writer (Current Employee)
Plano, TX

I have been working at Aquent as a contractor for more than a year

ProsI was really impressed with the benefits package - excellent health care, 401K, flexible spending accounts for healthcare, parking, child or elder care, reasonable holidays - and I was just working part-time! I became benefits-eligible after working 20 hours a week for four weeks - but had to maintain . They also offered a number of helpful webinars and contests on health and wellness topics, as well as some training opportunities.

The staff members I dealt with were always very friendly and helpful. While I was working, I heard from my agent on a regular basis, and felt like she genuinely cared about me and my career.

 Also, the online interface was easy to use -- to enter time cards, check benefits and refer friends.

ConsAfter my last contract came to an end, I haven't heard much from them. I had hoped for more support in finding another contract. I've heard the same complaint from another contractor who worked for the same client I did.

Advice to Senior ManagementFrom talking to other people who work on a contract basis, other firms offer more training resources. I was offered a couple of weeks of online self-paced training, but friends tell me other firms have considerably more available for contractors.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
