After reading these reviews I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought that using an umbrella company was the best way to get paid! 100% go with these guys. Came over with one agency that seemed super friendly but later found out I was getting ripped off on my pay as they told me I’d earn more with an umbrella company which was false. [...]
