    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great communication and follow up! Great attention to detail in the onboarding process. Maintained clear communication during my short time going from contractor to full time employee with an amazing company based in Seattle!

    Cons

    Aside from a few hiccups with their access portal to complete timesheets and a complicated labyrinth to get to pay statements, this place is top notch and always on the up and up!

    Advice to Management

    I highly recommend this place if you have the right skill set and are willing to work hard for the job you want. These folks are very connected to the tech industry and can help many people land a great job in these fields.

    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor

    Pros

    Good pay, nice staff to work with. Some PTO and benefits.

    Cons

    More concerned about making clients happy, not as concerned about placing contractors with jobs they want. No promotions or better opportunities after years of contracting. Didn't feel like they listened to location or assignment preferences. Usually only heard from them when assignment was wrapping up, so you don't feel like a part of Two Degrees or the company where you are contracting.

    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Slalom Consulting (Two Degrees) is a preferred vendor at Microsoft

    Cons

    In 1.5 years working on my contract I didn't receive any inquiries from Slalom if I liked the contract role/management/company or had discussions about my next steps in the career. No rate raises even on long term contracts even if you have an outstanding performance. They follow up with the reporting manager only to learn about your performance. No promotions, perks, training. No discussions about better opportunities.

    I worked at Two Degrees full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people who work there are really great. As a contractor you don't get to see them much because you're at the client most of the time but they're a lot of fun.

    Cons

    Little to no upward mobility in responsibility or pay. Bench time can drag on for weeks sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    You need to apply some pressure to some of your account managers to produce new contract opportunities. Some of them are just phoning it in.
