    I worked at ASCENT as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was an employee of Ascent in order to be a contractor of another company. My experience with Ascent was fantastic, my account manager was highly knowledgeable, knew all the employment laws, helped me to smoothly and efficiently onboard to both Ascent and the company I was working for (which had a lot of internal rules and regulations which made things very difficult). My account manager checked in with me to ensure I was being treated well at the company I was working for, and she answered any questions I had. Also, Ascent has an excellent onboarding meeting with new hires, introducing us to the company and explaining their company values (which was far better than the company I was actually doing the work for). When the assignment ended, Ascent was there to explain the process and ensure that this went smoothly as well.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons about Ascent. I only wish that the company I was doing the work for was as professional, organized and efficient as Ascent was.

    Advice to Management

    My account manager was fantastic, keep hiring great people, keep treating employees as well as I was treated. My hats off to Ascent for a very positive experience, I would highly recommend you to others.

    I have been working at ASCENT (More than a year)

    Pros

    Recruiter was very nice. That's about it.

    Cons

    Basically all this company did was tell me about a mass interviewthat only horescontractors so not to have to give benefits to the lowly IT workers. IF I went throught another third party I would have decent PTO and insurance.
    The benefits here are beyong bad. NO PAID TIME OFF! NO SICK! Healyh benefits are not affordable. 500 A MONTH FOR THE WORST PLAN AVIALBLE ON THE STATE EXCHANGE! doesn't cover anything either.

    Advice to Management

    GIVE PAID TIME OFF! GIVE DECENT INSURANCE!

    Pros

    Great leadership, they were very welcoming and allowed me to obtain a great experience with them. Work hours were good and they taught me a lot.

    Cons

    Some of the workers weren't very friendly in terms of the job, had to work with a couple of people who didn't want to help that much.
