I worked at CompuCom as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Hiring procedure fast and smooth. Reliable paycheck. Good communication with account manager and recruiter. Health insurance coverage better than some agencies.

Cons

They would not cover my partner on the benefits without meeting several requirements that I have not had to meet at other companies. I don't know anything about the company values or leadership as a contractor.

    I have been working at CompuCom full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Massive experience booster with respect to learning .NET technologies and getting used to a software development cycle. Given the pace at which things move in this place, you learn really fast. Succeed and fail fast, as it were.

    Cons

    The biggest kill for me is the volatile hours. Given that during my time I've moved from an office setting to a strict work from home style, it feels almost implied that you have to be wired up and ready to go 24/7.

    That being said, having gone from seeing people and having a good level of camaraderie to being locked down in a house or coffee shop has really put a hamper on morale. This change happened with the change in upper management. It feel like we're all numbers now and it's quite depressing. I don't think I'd stick around much longer.

    Advice to Management

    You have some really good talent under your command. They are valuable people and work incredibly hard to deliver top notch results. Treat them like human beings with some dignity. Visit your regional offices, meet with them, shake their hand and offer them some lunch or something. Make it feel like home, because what I started with here from a mentorship and culture perspective is no longer here and it's a crying shame.

    I worked at CompuCom as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pretty average when it comes to the positives. Always got paid on time and professional development reimbursement plan is fair to midland ($500 per year).

    Cons

    No feedback from the resource manager, positive OR negative. I had to find out through a former lead years after-the-fact that a previous client manager had been angry about something I had done and was looking to have my contract terminated. Never heard a word from my vendor rep, never was given any feedback for improvement. If your contract IS terminated for a non-obvious reason, do not expect to be given a reason. None of this is very surprising once you know that the sum total of my rep's (who replaced a very competent recruiter one year into my contract) relevant professional experience had been an MBA and a two-year contract as a project manager.

    The company has a non-compete clause which could put you out of contract work for six months if they cannot find a placement for you, which is ironic since they will do NOTHING for you after your contract ends except show you the door. Pay rates are very low compared to other contract agencies - they take a huge chunk of your pay and the benefits offered have become almost worthless. No empathy for employees and I felt entirely disposable, like a commodity rather than an employee.

    There is absolutely no worthwhile communication after you sign on the dotted line.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your agency temps fairly and with empathy, like people, not products. We are the ones doing the job while you get a chunk of our pay. Act as an advocate for your employees (contractors) instead of for your clients. Encourage the recruiters to make more effort to retain existing contractors. CompuCom takes a sizable percentage of one's hourly rate, so I would expect CompuCom to work a little harder for their money than they are.
