I worked at Parker Tide as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Independence, easy direct-deposit, friendly office staff.

Cons

Frequently disorganized, sent wrong invoices to the client I was working for, provided no networking opportunities for employees, terrible health benefits.

Advice to Management

Provide networking opportunities and information sessions for employees, especially when a large number are placed at the same government agency.

    I have been working at Parker Tide as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Keeps employees informed through emails and company newsletter.

    Responds to employee inquiries promptly and accurately.

    Refrains from getting between the employee and the customer.

    Pay is fair for the work performed.

    Benefits (holiday pay, leave, 401K, and more) are generous.

    Cons

    Uncertainty of future opportunities with the company (not the company's fault; comes with the territory in this type of work).

    Federal gov't and agency rules tend to isolate contractors from federal employee counterparts (again, not company's fault -- also, not always a bad thing).

    Advice to Management

    Do your utmost to keep yourselves at the high level you have established for yourselves and your employees.
