    Pros

    Very friendly company, great co-workers. Pay and benefits were good.

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Artech Information Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They provide a paycheck and you can opt in for "so-so" benefits. They are completely hands-off if that's what you like.

    Cons

    As a an employee of Artech who is contracted out to another company, Artech provides NO support for my contract whatsoever. When my contracting company decides to furlough my days per month or decrease my salary, Artech does absolutely NOTHING to help compensate. Artech gets paid every week by my contracting company at least 25% more than I get paid yet they do nothing to give some of that profit back to the employee to help maintain a steady annual salary. In addition, in the 8 years I've worked for Artech (yes I should have moved on long ago) they have NEVER held a single employee review or provided a promotion or salary increase. They are COMPLETELY hands-off and have no desire to support you whatsoever. They are only in it for the commission and do not consider contractors to be of any other value. I should clarify that my contracting company considers me an excellent contractor and has kept me on their team for 8 years and are continuing to give me the most complex projects. However the specific account I work for issues global salary and work reductions that are unavoidable. My complaint is with the fact that Artech does nothing to support me or maintain my salary, and after 8 years my salary has only gone backwards from when I started.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your contractors with the same respect you treat your own employees. Provide some encouragement and reward your long term contractors for their hard work and consistently excellent performance. Finally, give back some of the profit you take every week to keep your contractors happy.

    Pros

    No pro's what so ever. Artech is a hot mess and have not told the truth about a lot of their processes.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional start date was off target which wasted a lot of time. Promised two items that never came to fruition.

    Advice to Management

    Employee's have to follow through with everything that is part of the process verbal agreements are legally binding.

    Pros

    The Client does the day-to-day management, while Artech handles the HR and benefits part.

    Cons

    Artech often has no idea what the Client is planning with sourcing and will rarely notify the Engineer until last minute.

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind here. I wish I could list out some pros here, but I can’t. I can’t even. Run away.

    Cons

    Healthcare is awful: Before I signed on, I asked what my rate would be for my family. They said around $280 no-weekly. I was like, “sure sounds good.” The week I started they said they just got a new healthcare plan and it’s going to be $800 hi-weekly.

    The tools and software they use are not usable. It’s almost impossible to figure out how to add your bank account for direct deposit. The time entry application is just as bad.

    I’d never contracted before and have only ever been a FTE on a salary. I’m done after project is over. Never again. This has been an awful experience. This isn’t for me.

    They send out a ton of paperwork and documentation. The whole process is antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Update your software. Treat your employees better. Get better health insurance. Get with the times.
