    I have been working at Catamaran as a contractor

    Pros

    This is the best company I have worked for. As a contracted employee, I feel just as part of the team as if I was a perm. Employee. The hours are great

    I have been working at Catamaran full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You have to take the good with the bad. It is customer service, but you can walk away feeling like you've made a difference.

    Cons

    It is hard for people with young children to get good schedules or be accommodated after a shift bid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people. The interview/hiring process does not seem just. I feel you should just promote the people you know and can see in certain positions. People who do more work, between calls, should have a different title and be compensated more.

    I have been working at Catamaran

    Pros

    Great group of teammates that know how to get on board to knock out a job with finite resources. I have been a part of so many projects over the past 3+ years, it would take most companies with more people double the amount of time.

    Cons

    There isn't enough time in the day-month-year to get through the list of projects that come down the pipe from the business.
