    I have been working at Artech Information Systems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Google through Artech. Implemented lot of technologies related to G.Hn, mmWave. Also worked on building the lab from the scratch.

    Cons

    Though the environment is good, work pressure is merely less compared to my earlier companies.

    Advice to Management

    I rarely speak to Artech people where most of the time spend with the clients. So far no advise to the management.

    I worked at Artech Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    The diversity status does help open doors, they are working with some big name companies and I worked with some great people.

    Cons

    They are constantly advertising themselves for being recognized as the largest woman- owned IT staffing company in the US, however the only female in a production related leadership role I was aware to, (visible on a national level) is the CEO. All markets are run by men. It is also disturbing that when issues of gender discrimination and conflicts with male counterparts, the chosen resolution was to tell the females to be the bigger person (despite there being repeated incidents involving the same person) and just let it go. Outside of that, they don’t share information on accounts to help you grow business. Repeated requests for help in knowing who we had success with, that could be useful in presenting (and frankly what clients look and ask for), were ignored- at least that’s the answer we were given. We really were just told over and over that they are the largest and top woman and minority owned IT staffing company in the US. Seriously, that was the first answer they would give to most requests for info. Every person that I saw quit was out of complete frustration for not feeling they were being set up to succeed. The offshore team would change without anyone being made aware, so it was extremely difficult to get consistent recruiting support without having to hit the reset button and re-educate the team on client and team dynamics (which causes s delay in delivery). Contractors had major concerns with information being requested repeatedly by so many people. The on-boarding process is lengthy- it could take two weeks plus to get someone cleared to start.

    Advice to Management

    Have more women in leadership, and provide training to the male leaders you have in place. The ones I dealt with have no clue on equality. None. I would also recommend sending out leadership reviews to give your employees an opportunity to give honest feedback. This was the first company I’ve ever worked for who didn’t do this.

    Pros

    They didn't allow me to see their Pros. Apart from review there can't be any pros for them.

    Cons

    I never thought that a company like this will be so un-accountable. After starting the process, 2 weeks later they came back stating they can't proceed with my case. Beacuse of this attitude, I suffered a loss as I had to break my lease. In that 2 weeka, they didn't talk to me once to inform about process. After getting all the documents they said they can't proceed with my case.

    Advice to Management

    Be courteous to the future employees. If anything is stopping you to proceed, talk to the employee and inform them.

    Pros

    Emphasis on the employee, large international company, woman owned, diversity in client and employee base, growing!

    Cons

    Very large company, sometimes hard to get straight answers on things. Not a lot of flexibility on some things, but that is to be expected by such a large company. They do a great job overall!

    Pros

    Fake and Sweet Talk everytime

    Cons

    Not receiving calls. Takes interview, selecting candidate and then disappear. No reply followup after submission or interviews.

    Advice to Management

    Do not fool candidates and take responsibility to answer each and every questions after your failure. Pick calls do not run away with your responsibility. Do not take interviews if you are not sure about project.

    Pros

    There are no pros here. The company mission statement should be, "How can we not pay and demotivate sales people?"

    Cons

    Awful recruiting model, no support from leadership at all, and absolutely zero communication from anybody internally. Every different region at this company might as well be competition. The internal culture has been created from the top down that it will better serve you to lie about accounts rather than help out a fellow employee.

    Advice to Management

    There are no managers or leaders within this entire organization.

    Recruiting (based primarily in India) struggled to find quality candidates. Great people, hard working, etc. just didn't do that great of a job.

    Pros

    They provided a consistent paycheck.

    Cons

    The most inexperienced, unprofessional, novice recruiting staff. They will bombard you with phone calls and emails during business hours. In most cases common sense would prevail and most would assume the candidate was either not interested or was unavailable to speak about new opportunities. Not here, they lose clients due to the complete lack of professionalism.

    Zero support from upper management once assigned to a project as a contractor. When questions are posed back to management, answers take entirely too long to be provided. Management does not check in periodically on their assigned candidate to gauge how the project is going etc.

    Advice to Management

    Retrain all staff that have contact with candidates on any level. There are MANY other firms that are recruiting correctly and retaining great candidates assignment after assignment. This firm has zero idea what a thriving recruiting firm emulates.
