    I worked at Astrix Technology Group full-time

    Pros

    Opportunities for those in chemical engineering or pharmacological testing that are interested in being part of a contingency workforce

    Cons

    Everything here is really contingency workforce, regardless of whether they are telling you that you are a permanent employee, W-2, part of "core", part of "professional services". They claim be a "professional services" firm with 500 employees. In reality, they are a staffing company with 460+ contingency workers placed with labs. The remaining 40 are either sales people placing bodies or are configuring LIMS systems contract-by-contract.

    Advice to Management

    Just tell the truth - to your customers and to the people you recruit. You are a staffing company with a resume database who will say anything for a deal. You leave fictitious reviews of yourself to balance out the people that are trying to get the truth out there.

    Pros

    Great recruiting staff - always helpful, willing to listen and quick to respond/immediate action. Was placed in a contract-to-hire Chemist role with a pharmaceutical company and was just recently hired on full time with the company after only 3 months on contracting.

    Cons

    Nothing really negative to say...overall had a really great experience, especially compared to other recruiters I've worked with from other agencies in the past. Astrix far superior to them.

    I have been working at Astrix Technology Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pros are that the staff is friendly and the pay is not bad.This would be a good job for someone fresh out of school.

    Cons

    I think that if you do receive a part time off with an offer for full time, it should be stated in in advance as to a time frame as to how long it will take to get full time.

    Advice to Management

    I think that this company is very nice and experience and will go out of there way to help you. I just wish that some items were stated when it comes to a full time conversion.

    Pros

    Skilled in scientific staffing and they seem to speak the language. Geographically located to fit each market's needs.

    Cons

    Very limited growth. Almost zero communications from the leadership or management team - they don't care about anniversaries or anything beyond start date. Always seem to be focusing on making money out of people versus caring for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Talk and listen to the people working for you and have a stronger core values for your business.

    "Challenged & Rewarded in Management Position"

    I have been working at Astrix Technology Group full-time

    Pros

    During my employment with Astrix I have seen the usual ups and downs of our industry but have appreciated the consistent support of management. Before choosing Astrix, I was looking for a company where honesty and ethics were practiced not just talked about. Having those foundations that I see followed by management makes me committed to my team and our success.

    Cons

    Astrix is a company of very hard-working, entrepreneurial personalities which fits what I'm looking for, however if potential employees are looking for a job where they can clock in then clock out without taking additional responsibilities, that kind of person wouldn't be successful here.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to be very selective about who Astrix hires as we grow rapidly to meet our client needs. Making the right hiring decisions will allow us to keep our company culture intact, which is one of the reasons clients choose to work with & refer Astrix to others.

    I have been working at Astrix Technology Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been a recruiter for Astrix for 3 years and it is the best job I have ever had in my life. The environment promotes loyalty, honesty and hard work. They compensate you for the value created. They really care about the candidates and want everyone to be satisfied in their jobs, the entire organization knows science and they care. Great benefits, great HR, good systems...the best.

    Cons

    There are no cons, maybe could be more generous in commissions. All recruiters like myself have a good base but we make a lot of money when we put people to work at the right jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, you have created a great environment of competitiveness, flexibility and you tell everyone the truth and you are trusted by many in the company. Keep it up
