    I have been working at Strategic Staffing Solutions full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Appropriate salary for consulting services. Placed me with a large client in my field of expertise.

    Cons

    No promise of continued employment at the end of a contract. This is an, obviously, less than secure employment status. Then again, what job is actually secure?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Anything to provide more job security. It is the only thing missing.

    Don't expect them to be different than any other IT staffing body shop out there.

    I worked at Strategic Staffing Solutions as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Standard insurance benefit options, or decline benefits and negotiate a higher rate.

    Cons

    Get placed and never hear from them again. Have a problem? Good luck getting anyone in their back office to respond to you. Need to talk to your "account manager" - surprise! he or she no longer works at S3 and nobody bothered to tell you. Want a review for a rate increase after 12 months like their consultant agreement promises - hahahahaahaaahaa joke's on you! Zero plan to remarket candidates who've successfully completed projects. Don't expect to hear from them again until a manager at your former client calls them and asks if they can bring you back - then someone in recruiting will call you and try to be your best buddy for the free placement.

    I worked at Strategic Staffing Solutions as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    S3 has some great assignments for those with solid skills and they pay competitive or better than other staffing agencies. I was able to utilize best skills in an interesting assignment that paid well. The recruiters were hard-working and really seemed to care about your interests and being a good fit with the client.

    Cons

    Not necessarily lead to permanent hire - though one associate on my team at BCBS was hired after about a year. However, a perm position may not be implied so if you are after contract work, they are a great choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for caring about contract employees - not all agencies show the concern that S3 does.

    The PTO comes in handy especially when working for a company that has alot of vacation days.
