    I have been working at Alpha Consulting for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Alpha is my first consulting job after working for 15 years at my last company. In a couple of days, I will have been with them for 5 years. This is my experience. Since my first interview with them; I knew this was the right company for me and since then it's been nothing short of a great experience. It's kind of hard to put this into words why I feel this way but It has a certain 'old-school' feel in the way I am treated. Like, realistically, I know there's bunch of people that work for this company (because there's always a line at the annual holiday get together), but for the past five years, I've been made to feel like I'm the only person who works for this company. When I talk to other contractors who consult through Alpha, I don't think I'm alone in that feeling. From my manager to payroll and from HR to the CEO, I know that if I have a problem with anything, they'd all do whatever they could to help resolve it. Granted, I've never had to call Sam... but trust me, when he gives you his business card at every get together and says "Call me if you need anything" I'm pretty sure he means it. Seriously though it's a great company that I've grown to love working with. Some of the other positives *Flexible with me coming in as W-2 (vs 1099). *There is a benefit plan (if you're looking) *Heavy focus on making sure you are adequately supplied for the assignment *Heavy focus on making sure you're happy with where you're placed. *HUGE Network of existing and previous clients and not shy about getting you woven into that network. *Moral is important them. They want you to be happy

    Cons

    I don't have anything to say here. I mean it'd be silly to think that any company is absolutely perfect, but if there is something wrong with it, I have been fortunate enough to never come across it.

    I have been working at Alpha Consulting for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Alpha Consulting has been very supportive of me during my first consulting experience. The team has guided me through the process, they regularly check in on me and are very welcoming as a company.

    Cons

    As a consultant if you don't have a project then you don't have a job. They don't have a stop gap between projects however they do work hard to have a new project lined up before the other project ends. It's still stressful.

    I worked at Alpha Consulting full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked as a Consultant at a top company through Alpha for over two years. My experience interacting with the people at Alpha was consistently professional, respectful, responsive, and fair. If my agent didn't know the answer to something, she'd direct me to the correct person who did. They were always timely in returning calls. Your agent will generally prep you prior to your interview. There was never any payroll issues; always paid on time. Additionally, the company offers medical benefits and a 401K.

    Cons

    Job descriptions need to be more thorough prior to reaching out to the perspective employee. There are very few opportunities for EA's.
