    I worked at Artech Information Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

  2. "An Absolute Mess"

    I have been working at Artech Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    Some benefits after 60 days but other than just being used as a mediator for a job, not much.

    Cons

    Onboard hiring paperwork and background checks are all over the place. This is an all paper process that takes forever to complete and is even more difficult when fix if an error was made and just wastes your personal paper.

    The background check is even worse. They were constantly asking for information about prior employment (even after submitting all the relevant information) that could have been easily confirmed through a competent employment verification process.

    Last but not least, PAYROLL. The payroll system is terrible! They required me to go through TWO time sheet programs at the same time! After the first time sheet had been approved by the employer, I also had to take a screen shot and upload it on the second time sheet program for verification which is a whole other process when using company computers. Not user friendly or efficient. If that wasn't bad enough, the communication between temp agency and employer was non-existent. First payroll payment was missed due to not being able to submit in time because my direct supervisor that was in charge of my approval was not notified.

    If you are an employer planning on using Artech's services, please look elsewhere for the sake of your employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please do diligent research and hire experienced coordinators to update your system.

    I worked at Artech Information Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Payroll is on time and they are the only contracting option at some companies.

    Cons

    Compensation and hours will be cut once you are there for a while. Despite kudos and kind words from multiple levels of client management, my hours and salary were cut with the attitude that I could not find employment elsewhere.
    I did.
    When I turned in my stuff, my Artech manager didn't even know who I was. You're just an entry on a spreadsheet with Artech.

    Advice to Management

    HR is all you do, you'd think you would be good at it.

    Pros

    Nice benefits, friendly points of contact, they mostly stayed out of the way and let me do what I was contracted to do.

    Cons

    There's not a ton of flexibility when technical glitches cause problems in their process; they seemed confused by the fact that I was a remote worker.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your onboarding team understands remote work and doesn't make assumptions based on an employer's location.

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Deceiving practice. They hire you for a specific rate, then after you quit your job they reduce the rate by 10%. Not acceptable!!

    Advice to Management

    You are not in India! This is the US, you don't do those kind of things here.
