    I worked at Astek

    Pros

    Can't think of any reason to work with Astek. Pay an accountant and become self employed would be a much better experience.

    Cons

    - Salary is low - They don't take news to see how you're doing and if you're happy - They have so many contractor, they don't even keep track who is where. - The person who I was in contact with left, and no one took over my profile, had to learn that when I resigned.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. Indeed, the company has changed in its operations and there is now a dedicated team taking care of the UK. During this change, it seems that your information has not been passed through successfully and I am sad to hear that ...

    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!

    Advice to Management

    Please keep on listening to your consultants cause it is them who will build up and maintain the great reputation of the company in front of your clients. As mentioned in last Astek UK event, we really need to grow in this country cause we now have fantastic achievements and we need to show the world what we are made of.

    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...

    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.

    Advice to Management

    You should just hire one guy doing the business development for the London office as this city is experiencing very good economic growth and you should be there to take advantage of it. Your hiring process is fast and effective.

    I worked at Astek full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Salary. Unfortunately, that's about it.

    Cons

    - Inappropriate contract and salary currency: I was working on a French contract, based in the UK which means lots of transfer fees when paying for my living expenses in the UK. - Very bad recruitment process - Very bad human ressources management: The job description didn't match the day-to-day activities at all, no proactivity from the management to provide training which is a shame because a post-grad professionnal...

    Advice to Management

    - Review your recruitement process and strategy - Stop chasing and calling any new CV posted on Monster, this makes your company looks very miserable to get new employes and highlights that your company is poorly managed: employees keep leaving and high salary isn't enough to keep your employees
