    I have been working at Astek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The team is fantastic, both our HR and business development PoC are great professionals, always there to help us or answer our questions. We are currently assigned to a mission here in London where consultants are given the opportunity to make the difference. I have explained what i would like to do in the future in terms of career path and i feel like my opnion is important to the managers. Continue with this good work!

    Cons

    Everything looks bright on my end, perhaps we should organise more afterwork events as this really ties the group together!

    I have been working at Astek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have heard about them from a friend and I contacted the UK team saying I wanted to work as Business analyst or Product manager and they found me a job right away at their client premises in only 1 month, this is exceptional for London market. My salary is higher than average and finally i found someone who understands that being a contractor entails taking risks, i.e. I am paid more than the staff employees. There is no stress at work and I can have a great work life balance deal and spend time with my girlfriend and friends.

    Cons

    You gotta love to be on your own, they give you good salary but there is no business manager here to take care of your doubts/ questions. Very few cons indeed.

    I have been working at Astek full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You won't hear from them unless there's a problem or it's otherwise strictly necessary for them to contact you. Birds chirping, wind blowing, leaves rustling sound. All very quiet and peaceful.

    Cons

    There is no plan for a career with them and they even tell you upfront that the idea is for you to join Amadeus -their client- within a few years (not as easy as they make it out to be, anyway). Salary progression is non-existent: if you don't take action and go and harass them forget anything will ever happen on that front. They don't even pretend that they are somewhat interested in you: over the course of 2 years I have never been asked to come in for a performance review meeting or anything like that. I'm guessing all they care about is that Amadeus keeps paying for my fees. Whether I'm doing well or just the absolute minimum required doesn't seem to be of their concern.
