I worked at StackSurfers as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

My onboarding was very smooth. One point of contact for Benefits, 401k, etc.
They asked my manager twice if I was doing well. He told them my performance was at or above that of the rest of the team and they gave me both a Training and Development bonus and a Tenure Bonus.

Cons

Their interview process was a bit lengthy. I was screened by a StackSurfers Recruiter and then they had me do a coding challenge on codeeval.com. That all had to happen before I was submitted and interviewed by the client.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a good model. Most staffing companies take the profit and run. I really respect the fact that you guys reward the hard work that your contracted Developers do out in the field.

    I worked at StackSurfers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent client base consisting of small to mid-sized, well funded, startups. Received advanced sourcing training, tips and tricks daily. Good autonomy outside of daily requirements meetings in the morning. Work from home.

    Cons

    Great clients but limited volume in terms of contract roles. Primarily a contingent / retained firm which is fine but I would have liked to have built a better book of contracting hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus a little more on signing vendor managed systems. You will be better than the rest of the vendors.

    I have been working at StackSurfers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent culture. Cutting edge tools, systems, processes. Direct client access. Full req load.

    Cons

    Startups and mid-sized companies as clients. Good req flow but not great. Could have more Vendor Managed / Volume accounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've got great people. Continue to trust them to do what they do best, invest in their futures, and you have a solid recipe. So far so good!!
