    Pros

    Very helpful with resume updates, understanding STL market for IT, understanding my position within IT, interview preparation, etc. Assisted me with a Consultant position and very happy with the results (company placed, position, support while in the role, etc.).

    Cons

    Smaller company - no out of town positions. I was looking in FL as well, but they were only able to support me in St. Louis.

    Pros

    They initially respond to you and help you with resume and provide you opportunities.

    Cons

    You never hear from anyone once you start on a project. You have to intiate conversation towards the end of contracts. Will place you anywhere they can.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to contractors at the jobs to see how things are going.

    Pros

    I found the initial level of communication to be fantastic. They utilized my specialties and placed me in the right position. I knew upfront it was a 120 project and they even paid a bonus for accuracy and timeliness. Two thumbs up.

    Cons

    Communication once I was on the job could have been a little better but I appreciated them letting me do my own thing with "the employer".

    Advice to Management

    Great job.

    Pros

    - They are very good at initial communication - They help you to update your resume - They complelty listen to you ONLY in first meeting

    Cons

    - You do not get status update until you call them - You are only money making machine to them. They will stop responding you when they feel you can no longer make money for them. - They will tell you that all rates are fixed and are non-negotiable.

    Pros

    There are no discernible advantages that iBridge offers over competing consulting firms.

    Cons

    - Lack of communication regarding contract status, benefits. - Poor attitude demonstrated to employees, lack of respect a big problem. - Contractors treated like "cattle." Once placed, you're on your own. - Benefits package is weaker than most competing firms.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to realize that the consultants are their lifeblood. The poor interpersonal skills and suspect business practices (ex.: passing on reduced billing rate to contractor mid-contract without communicating changes) make you a poor choice for any consultant evaluating who to do business with. Consulting firms live and die by word of mouth.

    Pros

    They have a large network of clients in the Saint Louis area and seem to be very active in placing candidates.

    Cons

    I felt like I was being low balled on every offer they presented from their clients. I think this is pretty typical for placement firms, but if you want to be paid what you're worth you'll need to negotiate like crazy to get it. Once I was working there, I found them to be extremely unresponsive in dealing with issues with clients. They didn't seem to care very much about placing me in something that was a good fit either. I got the feeling they were just throwing my resume at anything that remotely matched my skill set to see what would stick. Once they finally placed me, I found that the job wasn't at all as described and they wouldn't really work with me to address my issues. I had two conversations with executive level management about my issues with the placement, both of which resulted in my being literally screamed and cursed at. A discussion I had with an account exec afterwards made it clear to me that my experience wasn't an isolated issue. It seems you can work for them, but just don't think about leaving! If you just need a job and don't care what it is or how you're treated, this place might be fine, otherwise steer clear.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your employees like the assets that they are and not like they owe you something just because they are contractors and you found them a job. Especially when that job is terrible and doesn't match their skill set. They are your only product after all. At some point, you're going to run out of talent in the area that is willing to work for you. What will you sell to your clients then?
