    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed my experience working with two degrees as a contractor. The recruiter that I worked with was awesome! She really helped me discuss my career goals and skills and she found a position for me that was a culture fit and enhanced my knowledge and skills. She always checked in with me to see how things were going and to make sure I was happy with the work that I was doing. They have a great reputation in the Phoenix area and they seem to have relationships with many companies in town. Great pay and benefits!

    Cons

    Not all of their clients want long term projects and work can be seasonal.

    Advice to Management

    I have referred several colleagues over. Keep hiring great people!

    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are NO PROS with in this Agency!

    Cons

    Multiple:
    Only pays 2 time a month (undisclosed)
    Automatic Deduction for NON- ELECTED Health Insurance (Mandatory)
    No placement follow up from recruiter's

    Advice to Management

    Consultants are HUMAN BEINGS and need to be treated as such!
    Consultants are not personal ROBOTS for the recruiters and that needs to be addressed immediately. Your Recruiters want to be treated as "GODS" for placement
    of the Consultants ... which is their JOB!! They are not suppose to IMPOSE personal favors as payment for placing Consultants BUT THEY DO!!

    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor

    Pros

    great benefits including paid sick and vacation after just a few months and paid holidays as well

    Cons

    not a lot of leads on local, well-paying temp work - most staffing positions available are not in legal industry

    Advice to Management

    get someone to infiltrate the legal practices within the Phoenix metro area there are a lot of independent contractors looking for good agencies

    Pros

    Great team, supportive management that promotes our company's core values and entrepreneurial spirit, interesting projects and clients.

    Industry has a bad rep which makes it a challenge to prove we're different, but once given the chance to do so it's clear we are.

    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great communication and follow up! Great attention to detail in the onboarding process. Maintained clear communication during my short time going from contractor to full time employee with an amazing company based in Seattle!

    Cons

    Aside from a few hiccups with their access portal to complete timesheets and a complicated labyrinth to get to pay statements, this place is top notch and always on the up and up!

    Advice to Management

    I highly recommend this place if you have the right skill set and are willing to work hard for the job you want. These folks are very connected to the tech industry and can help many people land a great job in these fields.

    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor

    Pros

    Good pay, nice staff to work with. Some PTO and benefits.

    Cons

    More concerned about making clients happy, not as concerned about placing contractors with jobs they want. No promotions or better opportunities after years of contracting. Didn't feel like they listened to location or assignment preferences. Usually only heard from them when assignment was wrapping up, so you don't feel like a part of Two Degrees or the company where you are contracting.

    I worked at Two Degrees as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Slalom Consulting (Two Degrees) is a preferred vendor at Microsoft

    Cons

    In 1.5 years working on my contract I didn't receive any inquiries from Slalom if I liked the contract role/management/company or had discussions about my next steps in the career.
    No rate raises even on long term contracts even if you have an outstanding performance. They follow up with the reporting manager only to learn about your performance.
    No promotions, perks, training. No discussions about better opportunities.
