    I worked at Ashfield Commercial & Medical Services full-time

    Pros

    Excellent health benefits, company car

    Cons

    Very low salary, and not made to feel part of the company - more like something expendable. Contract and salary ended within one week, with absolutely zero assistance to get placed on a new or other contract.

    Advice to Management

    When a contract ends, make more of an effort to assist displaced employees with another contract opportunity.

    I worked at Ashfield Commercial & Medical Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I actully really enjoyed this job it was a good work life balance, the benefits were solid and the pay was livable.

    Cons

    I didn't have any hard feelings about them laying us off I just didn't appreciate how they handled it. They made sure to do it the Monday before Christmas and since our last day was the 23rd it guaranteed that they wouldn't have to pay out any of our December bonuss whcih many of us were owed.

    Advice to Management

    You guys provided a suitable enough working environment but your refusal to do the right thing or awful any real kind of severance was an incredibly sorry move. You knew this was coming for weeks a little heads up would have been nice maybe help us get out ahead of the job hunt. Not the worst company I've ever worked but they're arguably the sorriest...
