    I have been working at Modis as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I like the client company that I am assigned to

    Cons

    They take a disproportionate percentage of my bill rate - almost 70%, and I don't get any paid days off, no holidays, no benefits, no perks of any kind.
    I'm considered "hourly" but I'm not allowed to get overtime, even though the client expects it.
    They never reach out to me to see how things are going.
    The other contract companies at my client are much fairer to their employees.
    I can't change contract companies due to the clients' policy, so I'm stuck with Modis until I leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so damn greedy. How can you justify taking such a high percentage of my bill rate and giving me NOTHING in return?

    Shockingly unprofessional recruiting policies

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Modis as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    None that I could tell straight off

    Cons

    I am a senior level communications professional. The recruiter who contacted me from the Cincinnati office demanded that I appear on Skype for a face-to-face interview with her personally before she would represent me to the client. She refused to allow me to go to my local Modis office in Knoxville and she refused to drive to the Knoxville office to interview me. I had to appear on Skype or Face Time or she would not represent me to the client period. I found this extremely unprofessional and bordering on discrimination. I predict a firestorm of discrimination lawsuits for this company if they do not change this shocking requirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    First of all, learn to treat talented, experienced candidates with *respect*. Court them. We are your bread and butter. Second, hire yourselves a corporate attorney and consult with him or her before implementing recruiting policies that will likely land you in court. You are putting morons in charge who are placing your company at risk.

    I have been working at Modis as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At the job site, there is an opportunity to learn quite a bit about IT

    Cons

    I got a paycut in less than a year working for Modis. I have been at the job site for over 6 years and I still have not gotten to my original salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your contractors. If we were doing a bad job, we would have been gone already. We are not making a salary equal to our experience and expertise.

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

    Pros

    Autonomous management, very little interaction with overhead positions in HQ.

    Cons

    The company cancelled consultant healthcare & benefits in 2013. Net result was the lower pay scale (for W2 hourly employees) with no compensation for benefits or paid days off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the current positioning of the company as a staff augmentation firm, your primary resources (its people) are at risk of accepting positions with other staff aug. firms (with better pay or benefits). Or, these same resources are at risk of roll-off/ termination. The client can find the same resources and experiences at a lower bill rate than what you (Modis) billing.

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

    Pros

    Very energetic recruiters. Fair compensation for contract work. Very quick approval of time.

    Cons

    You are like the red headed stepchild once you are placed. It is up to YOU to negotiate an extension of the contract as requiters will not help in any way. Once contract is over, you are forgotten and may get one phone call, that is it. They do not try to place you with another contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget that the contractors are your core business and should be treated as such.

    I have been working at Modis full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Exceptional support staff in Dallas/Fort Worth. Great client. I have no complaints about the Modis people from the Account Manager to the phone support people. This is by far the nest consulting experience I've ever had.

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible. That's not really Modis at fault I think as Obamacare screwed everyone with a job. It's the only drawback to this excellent experience. I will drop their coverage and purchase my own when as soon as I can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and thank you for the opportunity.

    I have been working at Modis full-time

    Pros

    Good way to get foot in the door for staffing industry.

    Cons

    Lowest base salary of all staffing agencies in the Denver area. Too many changes with no room for advancement. Very metrics oriented even though they lie in interviews and say they are not cut throat. Phone report log sent to entire company every day, as well as sales numbers. Very discouraging place with few quality team leaders

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the base salaries so the team members stop leaving to every other recruiting agency in the area
