I liked the team that I worked on which was Unisys Team Chicago. We served as the Outsourced IT Solutions Team for all of the City of Chicago Employees and facilities. I had the privilege of working with some of the High Profile staff at the City. I was primarily remote from the main office, but got to go to the office whenever needed. I used those times to talk to some of the other Remote, LAN, R&D, Unix, and WAN engineers. I also formed great relationships with management and even adopted a member of the management staff as a mentor during my time there. Ed Tyson has passed away unfortunately, but what he's taught me has manifested into a great career in IT. There was plenty opportunity to advance ones career on the Chicago Team, acquire reimbursed certifications, hands on opportunity, and enterprise wide knowledge of IT and IT infrastructure. The position was contract with a guaranteed 40hrs/week.
Management then didn't know how to communicate effectively with the team/employees. They did their best to convey the urgency of certain issues, but it sometimes wasn't well received in the manner it was delivered. This may have very well changed as of this moment as I'm writing this, but I feel it's an opportunity to bring to light some issues that can help boost morale and speak up to management as some employee's may not feel comfortable. Some of the smaller contracting companies that the employee's come from may also practice unfair processes and the contracting employee may feel stuck and that there isn't a way for anything to get better for their situation while on the project contracting.
