I worked at Populus Group as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Received a small paycheck. Met new people at the contracting company that were able to assist with networking.

Cons

Lower than average pay because Populus takes a large cut from the company you are working for. Very little notice that your contract is up. Very little notice that your contract is extended. The young HR person was very Unorganized with on-loading, forms, benefits, etc and not very knowledgable. Inexperienced HR contacts errored on my benefits sign up multiple occasions. Unprofessional communication with my contact at Populus Group. I feel like most employees there are treated poorly as if their only position there is to make Populus money. They simply don't respond unless they are forced to. Received my last paycheck late. I had to email my contact there on 5 occasions to get paid.

Advice to Management

No thank you.

    Pros

    Competitive rates and benefits, staff initially supportive and helpful

    Cons

    Little communication after contract began. No communication regarding end of contract. Inept and incorrect handling of employee setup processes.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your contractors as if they might be a hiring manager some day. Train internal staff carefully so that they get documents right the first time.
