Yes, our consultants provide professional work or expert advice in their particular fields of science and/or business.

No, all team members of Gentry Professional Services are W2 employees of our company. If a client were to use independent contractors instead of Gentry, there can be confusion over whether that worker should be considered the client’s employee and eligible for their benefits.

We make it clear that the worker is our employee. We pay for workers compensation. We withhold their taxes. We pay their benefits.


No. In an employee leasing relationship, the worker is controlled and supervised by the client. In our arrangements, the worker is considered the authority and is either working independently, consulting on a project, or training client employees. They take an active leadership or management role for the client, implementing changes and leading the organization.

The term contingent worker is an umbrella term that can include anyone who provides work for a business but is not on that businesses payroll. Since the term is broad, it can include everything from an assistant from a staffing agency to the workers of a subcontracted company providing an outsourced product or service.

In short, while Gentry team members would be considered contingent workers, the term also includes services unrelated to what we provide.

Yes, this can be considered gig work. While some refer to gig work as transactions mediated online, we consider it to be any short-term, project-based work performed by someone who is not a direct employee of the client.

Yes, we provide:

(1) Paid time off

(2) Sick time

(3) 401(k) with company match

(4) Medical insurance

(5) Company-paid dental insurance

(6) Company-paid vision insurance

(7) Company-paid life insurance

(8) Additional Optional life insurance

(9) Optional accident insurance

(10) Optional cancer insurance

Contact our office to set up a 15-30 minute virtual meeting where we spend time understanding what your challenges are and to see if there’s a potential fit between your needs and what we do best. We won’t be trying to “sell” you anything. If there’s a potential fit and you want to explore it further, we will address it beyond the initial discovery call. If there’s not a fit between your needs and our capabilities, we can hopefully refer you to another company who can better serve you.

We don’t list names because we have non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) with our clients. Our first customers were in the aerospace and defense industry, where this was a common practice particularly for government contracts. As our client base expanded, we found commercial companies also wanted NDAs. This makes sense because when clients come to us, they are asking for help in a critical part of their organization. Clients do not wish to reveal a competitive disadvantage or that they were unprepared for changes in the workforce.

That being said, we can say that four of the top 50 US defense contractors are clients, along with other Fortune 100 companies.

Depending on your needs and the type of work involved, we can accommodate either (1) a fixed price for completion of a project, (2) an incremental fee structure based on the completion of project milestones, or (3) a time and materials contract based on a labor rate for hours worked.

We work with your Human Resources, Supply Chain Managers, and/or Procurement Specialists to establish the appropriate service agreement that solves your problem and fits within your corporate policies. We accommodate whatever form of contractual agreement your company prefers to become your vendor, supplier, subcontractor, or partner.

Our staff and consultants are not all retirees, although they all do have very specialized knowledge and experience. Several of our team members consult for software projects. Sometimes, particularly when the software needed is beyond the client’s core competency, customers will outsource the entire project to Gentry.
