This company has since been acquired by OpenText. Actuate liked to keep people temps for a very long time, often more than a year or 1.5 years. This means hourly pay (underpaid, intern rates), no direct deposit, no vacation, no health benefits. These employees have the same or sometimes more responsibilities and workload than employees with benefits. Not only is this immoral and unethical, but it is very dangerous. Before the Affordable Care Act, people without health benefits can't afford to go to the doctor. By keeping employees as temps with no benefits, Actuate shows how it doesn't care about employees' health. People can die without proper medications and treatment. There are other cons, but this is the most important to note.
Advice to Management
Do not lie or make fraudulent promises to employees. Temps are often promised benefits and full-time status at a certain date, but then given excuse after excuse over many months (headcount, "we're working on it", etc). This is so deceitful and just plain WRONG. Let the employees' contracts expire or give them the benefits they deserve.
