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

    Pros

    They find the highest quality jobs in an area with the highest pay and match them with the right candidates.
    I've worked with over 10 staffing agencies and none was able to find me the greatest jobs with the top leading companies .

    Cons

    Their team communication wasn't the best on the India department, but there's not much else I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    I'd highly recommend to get with the times and get a team communication app instead of so many inefficient emails.
    like discord or slack (paid version of discord)

    I worked at Artech Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    The people at Artech were very good to me. If you invest in the people in the Bellevue office, I've seen them repay that with kindness and care.

    Cons

    The direction of the company continues to trend toward cheap contracts, and associated outsourcing. The benefits are aligned with that. From my perspective, the company lacks vision at the executive levels.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't lose sight of the personal care that Vega exemplified. And, if you wish to pursue low-margin contract, be upfront with prospects about corporate philosophy.

    I worked at Artech Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    If you crack the interview with the client, you get to work. There won't be any communication with Artech. No one will check on you on how you are doing at the job. If you consider that as pro then it's a pro.

    I would suggest to go past the first 2 pages of the reviews. The reality of working with Artech is past the first page.

    Cons

    I will list them down for easier read.

    1. No benefits. Artech does not pay even a single penny for insurance. Everything is out of pocket. No discount provided. You get the same price as on the marketplace. If you shell out extra $10-20 you can get an advanced healthcare that covers everything from marketplace.

    2. No PTO. If you work with them for 5 years you'll still get 0 PTO.

    3. No hike. You can work with them for years together and never will you get even a 1% hike.

    4. No communication. When you get a job, there'll be a point of contact assigned to you. They will keep changing every 2-3 months. So you are left to just call on their office number and randomly ask for assistance. You will be put on hold and transferred from 1 person to another until you hang up.

    5. If you are on visa and need visa assistance (opt, stem forms, H1 filing/extension/rfe, green card), RUN!!! Run as fast as you can. They will never help you out. They will delay everything. Any amount of calling or emailing will not help. You'll get answers like "I'm waiting on the team to get back to me", "The rules are changing", "We can provide you with the client letter but we'll have to change a few things on it". You cannot rely on them whatsoever. Do not trust them when it comes to your visa. They don't care about what your problems are. If you are lucky, your client might help you out more than Artech. If not, then goodluck trying to figure things out for yourself.

    Artech does not care about you. You are just a money making machine for them. Stay AWAY!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Reward and acknowledge them. Don't forget your company runs on their money. Treat them with respect and listen to their problems and solve them.

    I worked at Artech Information Systems (More than a year)

    Pros

    HR stays in contact with you to make sure things are going well. If there was an issue, they handled it with class and respect. I could speak open and honest with HR and it was not held against me.

    Cons

    In my circumstance I did not work day-to-day with the staff as they were my contracting company.

    Advice to Management

    I would take a more active role on behalf of the employee in regards to their relationship with the contracting firm and the future/promotions with that firm.

    Pros

    They work with good companies

    Cons

    When accepted the offer we agreed on one rate per hour, once I quit my job they lowered the rate by 10%!!! I thought I was the only one but for what I have read this is how they operate. It's dishonest and not ethical at all!!!

    Advice to Management

    Stop this practice of you will be sued!!!

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Low pay relative to industry standards, terrible benefits, and shady management. They get business by lowballing competitors, not because any of their staff is talented or knowledgeable about sales whatsoever. It's pathetic.

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