I worked at Affiliated Managers Group as a contractor (less than an year)Pros
No reason whatsoever to work at AMG as a temp from an employment agency especially if you are the only one from your agency - You will be depressed or go insane! They are temp/contractor unfriendly.
If you are from an audit firm, you probably don't have much choice but to go and represent your audit firm. In your case, the fact that you will most likely come as a group from your audit firm may help you maintain your sanity.
The good thing about being a part of an audit group @ AMG is that they will assign a room to your group with a large camera close-by to watch and listen to your conversations.
Another good thing is that they will provide a phone room (probably bugged with an eavesdropping device) to secretly record your personal conversations.
Finally, IT just got smart by adding the word 'contractor' to the e-mail addresses of contractors or temps! This way, they are alerting everyone to filter you out from the several, daily secret e-mails!!Cons
Your employment agency will most likely paint the most beautiful picture of this gated 'castle' located somewhere in "wealth land" 600 Some Street in Beverly, whereby chefs cook magnificent free lunch for the employees, cozy gym in a mansion etc.....well, they probably don't know you are not allowed in the gym, you are not part of this free lunch program which is meant for the privileged full-time AMG staff. They will also forget to tell you about this secret culture @ AMG!!! Is it a cult?
You are confined to your desk or room (in case of a audit group). You are allowed to go to the bathroom assigned to your group, you can use the photocopy machine (Camera? Where?). If you are the type that likes to stretch your legs after sitting for long hours, be careful where you go and how often!! HR will probably just appear like a fairy in front of you from nowhere and ask if they can walk you around (knowing fully well that you have worked there for months and you know your way around your confinement!)
What is all this secrecy about? It seems to be more than just protecting vital information (which is normal for any company and understandable considering the nature of their business). Is there more to it?Advice to ManagementAdvice
Use some of your charitable contributions to provide food for contractors/ temps. You can begin charity from home! Food is way too cheap in America!!!....especially the type of nature-abundant leaves and flowers you serve for lunch.
Also, keep everyone healthy irrespective of employment status- Open the gym for contractors too!! They will work more efficiently (great ROI). Remember to put posters all over the gym to read " shhhhh". This way full-time employees will remember not to discuss those secrets!!!
Give some incentives to those front desk girls....they'll stay longer!Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
