Independence, with benefits - indeedCommunications Specialist (Current Employee)
MARCOMM is great -- they helped place me in a company I wanted to work for, and offered competitive wages plus great benefits. The owners are nice, down-to-earth guys, too. You work on site with the client, but they are just a phone call or email away.

This is my first contract position and I was unsure of being a contractor, but MARCOMM is one of the best. The management team is very easy to work with; they make it easy and transparent when presenting an opportunity to you. Other contractors, from different organizations, who I talk to are usually envious of MARCOMM’s generous paid vacation policy and flexibility.
