    I worked at Technisource full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Contact manager was engaged with the employee as much as he could be in a contract situation. Randstad was helpful when the site client converted several of us to long term supplemental positions (LTS) [no longer working for Randstad]

    Cons

    1) In a contract situation, being able to award salary increases was very difficult. No real path to get a raise or promotion. A virtual promotion could be gained by taking on more responsibilities, yet no pay increase accompanied the extra effort. To be clear, no opportunities for advancement or pay increases were part of the original job description. 2) Randstad at one point had an on-line training portal available for employees

    Advice to Management

    Continue to advocate for your contact agents and employees. Buy them dinner once a year & talk to them once in a while.

    I worked at Technisource full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work for a fortune 500 company in a world class datacenter.

    Cons

    Good luck finding a job after working for Technisource, or whatever name they happen to be going by these days. The fact that they have changed names so often should be your first red flag. Gaslighting, inept middle management, who run their team like their personal fiefdom, if you're not in the "good ol' boys club" you're not going anywhere. When they finally cut you loose, their reasons are based on lies. Don't let them find out you're taking college classes at night and don't you dare take any paid time off, they'll use it against you.

    Advice to Management

    I'm sure treating employees like a hamburger patty at the Sunday barbeque is part of the business model and you're doing just fine in that regard.
