    I have been working at SureWest Communications as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very flexible hours and arrangements. Excellent co-workers. All IT personnel were highly trained and more than willing to help out during projects and production support events. All team members pulled their own weight during projects and were all team players. Even though I was a contractor, I was treated as if I was en employee.

    Cons

    The facilities in the older building were much better than where we ended up at after the move. In an effort to cut cost, there was a lot of streamlining and as a result, we had to move locations. The new location does not facilitate efficiencies as it is an older location and parking is very difficult at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My direct manager and his manager were absolutely superb. Could not ask for a better boss.
