    I worked at CDI Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my shift and I was great at handling tickets using Service NOW to make sure they were properly handled if still in an unresolved state.

    Cons

    Well, I showed up every day since I was hired in July except for the last two days (Friday and Monday) since I had to deal with a wake. I got back Tuesday which was when they let me go on the client's recommendation. Funny thing is the tickets were always directed to the correct help desk.

    Advice to Management

    A professional company would've been transperant with their client about company's workforce. I would've appreciated if they had foresight to give me room and let me go at the end of the week.

    I worked at CDI Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was decent and working for them was nice. I liked working there. The layout the office was nice at the beginning.

    Cons

    Who ever did the medical benefits they where too high and very expensive for medical and double of what I am paying now. Many people kept to them self. Manager didn't manage very well. Location of office was neat but traffic was heavy getting in and out. Sometimes it would take an hour extra to get into work.

    Advice to Management

    Management didn't care about us and let us go because they lost a major job. What is worse is asking for work when you are finished manager stated that it wasn't his job to find me work call the director. It also didn't help when the manager all of a sudden didn't like you. I worked there for less than 2 years. It was a giant train wreck when it was over. Also made us work so that we worked 4 - 10 hour days, but I worked a half day on Friday. Seemed grueling at times working that schedule. They made some changes that went the wrong way and things got smaller at the office.

    Pros

    Experienced competent friendly coworkers and managers

    Cons

    Days off include holidays and any sick time
    Some staff get 401K matching while others do not
    Core worker policy desciminates against new staff
    Employees doing same job function have significantly different pay rates
    Contracted employees are treated as non-employees
    Company recently sold

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Core Employee policy and staff projects on ability, rather than time with company, otherwise there is no incentive for new hires to join the company.

    I have been working at CDI Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The corporate support departments, i.e. HR, Account, Finance, and IT, are relatively understaffed, so it is easy to take on new responsibilities and build your skillset simply by volunteering for various projects.

    Cons

    Employee morale is and has been extremely low for the past few years with little to no hope of improvement. This is due to poor company performance, changing or unclear business focus, lack of merit or cost of living increases, no career advancement programs or opportunities, open office work space, little concern for employee work/life balance, few WFH opportunities, extremely expensive benefits, stingy PDO policy for most employees, and the list goes on and on.

    Pros

    They are easy to work for and have been very responsive to my needs.

    Cons

    It's a consulting firm, so there are always pros and cons with working as a sub-contractor. I have had no issues with working for CDI, and in fact their management has been very responsive and helpful when I needed them.
