    I have been working at Princeton Information as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    They found me a job

    Cons

    They refuse to provide information when questions as to what is going on with your contract. When this questions arises the only response I have gotten is your manager likes you, dont worry. If the job market was just that easy. A manager liking you does not guarantee employment.

    I worked at Princeton Information as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had positive experience working with Princeton Information in 2013. They offered me an interesting project and fair compensation. It didn't lead to a permanent hire, though, but I was ok with that.

    Cons

    Don't really have anything bad to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in touch with your former contractors.

    "First Contracting Experience"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    I was able to work in a desired position that I otherwise wouldn't have known was available. I became an employee of the agency on a W-2 basis, which meant they handled the HR functions, payroll, taxes, benefits. The benefits included medical, 401k and training opportunities, though no holiday or PTO. The hourly rate they negotiated was more than I was asking, yet I feel this may have been a factor in the clients' decision to end the contract early. The office staff is responsive to inquiries and communicates proactively. Questions are quickly addressed and the Account Manager periodically checks in to inquire how things are going. Systems and documents are available on-line and easily accessible. I expanded my network of peers while working for the client.

    Cons

    I met the Account Manager on the day of face-to-face interview and spoke 2-3 times with him after. Not too many issues with the agency, more at the client site. Hourly contractors could not bill for more than 40hours so many were 'voluntarily' working 10-20+ hours overtime unpaid. This culture and precedent made it difficult to set and manage expectations for what could realistically be accomplished in 40 hours. The political and cultural environment at the client site limited direct communication with sponsors and stakeholders, which made information gathering and collaboration ineffective and time-consuming. These limitations also meant functioning in a reactive mode more often than a proactive one. The anticipated 12-18 month contract was ended after 5 months.

    Advice to Management

    Consider educating new recruits about the nature of contract work as an hourly or salaried employee of the agency. Clarify the reporting structure (which questions, risks or issues are to be worked with and through whom). Set and manage expectations about length of contract and opportunities to convert to full-time vs. short-term fill-in and communicate clearly about the next steps in each of those scenarios

    "No Broken Promises"

    Pros

    As a consultant, agencies are always something to be skeptical of in terms of promises and delivering on that. Princeton Information has delivered 100% on what they said that they would do. They are prompt, they are efficient, and they set out to get you X and they deliver you X. I have zero qualms with them and would definitely work with them again in the future.

    Cons

    I have no cons to enter.
