Superb individual partner stuck in an ambiguous giant agency.
Data Analyst, Project Manager I & II (Jelenlegi alkalmazott) – Renton & Redmond, WA – 2017, november 28.
I'm contracting every few years in this economy with the position and culture fit driving my choices and the luck of the draw determining who pays me. It really depends on the recruiter/sourcer. I happen to have a GREAT recruiter right now who happens to be with TEKsystems and found me ahead of the rest who called and weren't as good. I'm having a good experience. I've previously worked with a bunch of idiots serving the Software Giant in the region and those recruitment and then contract experiences were really a trial. They had a staffing challenge and they were staffing people. Absentee agency is better in that case.
With the current gig, the recruiter, account manager, and client worked really well together prior to sourcing me. They knew what they were looking for and I have a GREAT conversion opportunity. I find that the direct placement side of talent agencies are far better for me than the contingent staffing side. I feel like a partner in their business development and have regular check ins. There is a meaningful relationship and exchange happening. I happen to be lucky right now and I'm grateful for it. She and her account partner are fantastic & I live in fear of my recruiter burning out or the culture at TEKsystems driving her away.
I don't expect this experience to repeat and I have zero loyalty to the brand.
Superb listening and sourcing skills for the client and the contractor
Except when is sucks really really bad. The individual makes it what it is.
