    I worked at Millennium Pharmaceuticals as a contractor (more than an year)


    Employee events; compensation; work-life balance


    I was a contractor for 2 years and they would have kept me on as a contractor indefinitely had I not left. Aside from this possibly being illegal, it does not give the contractors incentive to stay. About 1/3 of the company is made up of contractors. While the contractors were always included in special events, the lack of job stability and manager bias against contractors was enough to make me leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your resources and give your contractors incentive to stay.
