I have been working at Astrix Technology Group as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Contract work which can work with your schedule. Good screening procedures. Some jobs though temporary are ongoing for years.

Cons

It is a contractor, therefore ability to move into a company as a regular employee may be limited or unavailable because of contract. Very little contact and that is usually initiated by the employee. Security of the jobs is not guarenteed and does reflect the changing needs of the contracting company.

Advice to Management

More hands on contact with both employees contracted out and contracting company. Information exchange is important in keeping the contracts viable.

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

    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.


  2. "Be very, very careful of this staffing company"

    Negative Outlook

    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.
