    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Alta It Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits like health, dental, and vision are available. Management seems to be fairly well put together and responsive.

    Cons

    The benefits provided are limited in scope. Time and attendance is handled in a very convoluted fashion, which makes planning time off and pay cycles difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize some of your practices, and offer more benefits to your contract staff.

    I worked at Alta It Services (More than a year)

    Pros

    Alta has an EXTREMELY friendly environment. The make you feel welcomed from the moment you walk through the door. They were also helpful in teaching me the IT staffing industry.

    Cons

    The cons of this job is that it requires a lot of concentration. I do not believe this is a real con, because any job requires this. I just have nothing else bad to say about the company.

    Advice to Management

    No advice necessary. Management is friendly and handles situations well. They are very caring as well, so if you had any issues with pay, personal issues, or anything else, they would be helpful.

    I worked at Alta It Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had the fortune to be recruited by ALTA IT Services in the winter for 2014. I was employed soon after as a contractor for the company as a federal contractor. The entire process was very efficient, quick and professional. I had the good fortune of working closely with a Sr. Recruiter in the company who guided me every step of the way. Can't say enough good things about her.

    Can't recommend them highly enough for anyone in the federal contracting space.

    - Excellent management (responsive, informative, social)
    - Friendly recruiters
    - Issues resolved very quickly, sometimes same day
    - Prompt invoicing

    Cons

    Can't think of any cons; i know they were thinking of developing expanding their 401k Plan.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the management would be to continue being an employee centric company. Keep the lines of communication open with employees, invest in them and continue to work with reputable companies in pursuit of profitable contracts.
