    I worked at McGrath Systems as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Assignments are challenging and have a good client list.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive; below average for what consultants bring to the table. Benefits are not comprehensive for consultants. Poor recruiting transparency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should offer long-term consultants the same benefits as your employees. Additionally, benefits should be comprehensive not supplemental. Also, recruiters should let consultants know that they will not work for McGrath directly but a subcontracted type of situation where applicable.

    Pros

    Exposure to CEO was great.

    Cons

    CFO made business decisions without having staffing experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people with a proven track record of success in the staffing industry who are committed to growing the company.

    I worked at McGrath Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I gained a lot of expertise in building a large labor pool in a very short time. At first I felt like I was part of a real team and had the mentor I was looking for in the CEO. Pay was decent.

    Cons

    Directions were vague at best. Expected to do things that I had no control over. I was given employees that caused problems with our contractor that I did not hire nor did I want there. I was held responsible for theiir actions. I was not allowed to hire any employees yet was fired for not hiring enough employees to properly staff the job. Secret meetings about me that were power plays to take my job. I saw that coming but could not fire the insubordinate employees who were causing problems.Had multiple accusations thrown at me as reason for termination from not hiring all the way to sexual harassment. Overall experience was really traumatic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your guy some support. If you want someone to do the job give him/her what they need to do that. Don't use a loyal hardworking man as a scapegoat when things go south when it is your fault. Do not throw a million accusations at your employee it makes you seem crazy.
