    I worked at Tad PGS as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Excellent pay opportunities.
    - Experienced people to work with.
    - Great opportunities for learning new skills in a diverse work environment.

    Cons

    - Contract positions, therefore no benefits.
    - Minimal time of employment.
    - Good 'ole boy network for hiring some employees. I was hired along with another technically proficient person as part of a four man team. The other two individuals were not at the interview as they were called on privately by the Senior hiring agent because they were old friends. They were also complete idiots and mostly useless during the 5 week job duration.
    - Little to no chance of long-term employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some tiers of management appear to be overlooked when it comes to some of the hiring practices, while other parts of the job, in it's duration, are micromanaged. Some management have great heads on their shoulders and ensure a successful product.
    I would enjoy working with your company again if it didn't take so long between contracts. One can only go without long term employment for so long.

    I worked at Tad PGS

    Pros

    Working outside. Plenty of travel. Learning or developing new skills. You can see how your job played an important role in the exercise.

    Cons

    Working outdoors. You are at the mercy of the outside temperature. The outside shows no mercy in the summer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    In the past there were some situations where there was communication breakdown which lead to some awkward situations.

    As a subcontractor to TASC you were a last resort to hire and first to lay off.

    Get more involved with the prime.

    I have been working at Tad PGS as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The overall work environment is pleasant (of course this can vary depending on where your contract is at). The staffing agency/local contacts for the company are always responsive to the client and continually building a strong relationship with the client to develop future opportunities. Additionally, they offer an eLearning suite to help in the development of skills for career growth.

    Cons

    The primary cons are Major Healthcare and Stability. In regards to the stability, this can vary based on the contract, some short, some long. Very few direct hire opportunities, but as the company grows its client base, this should get better over time. In regards to major healthcare, the company does not offer one. I see this as a major flaw as more and more people are looking for the stability if they are already working a contract gig. Although, not the company's fault (this is a subsidiary to Adecco) its something they should really re-consider, especially if you hire people who have families.

    I have been working at Tad PGS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They seem to understand their clients needs and goals. Support staff is informed and trained to support their clients.

    Cons

    They seem to be becoming somewhat complacent after having worked with them for a period of years. They seem to need to regroup, and realign their goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reassess mission statement, mentor staff on client requirements, and reinforce professionalism and that staff should not take requests personally. They also need to respond to contractors needs promptly.

    I have been working at Tad PGS

    Pros

    Consideration of management. Being treated like a person and not just a number. The fact that you can ask questions and actually receive answers. The proximity of a management to the place I work.

    Cons

    As with any job in this economy the medical benefits could be more generous/ however that is not anything that would cause me to look for any other employer. The trade off more than likely could not replace the feeling of belonging with a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not stop the way you are currently handling management affairs...please!
