    Pros

    Good reputation. Quality before quantity. Only negative is a too many micro-management tasks involved.

    Cons

    To many metrics distracts from focusing attention where its really needed, Can be too overwhelming at times. Very hard when you start. Depending on the position terrible commission structure.

    Advice to Management

    Let sales employee's have more responsibility. Insist on a minimum vacation policy. Follow procedures to make a true and real work/life balance work place.

    Pros

    Working as a contractor allows designers to experience different working environments and sharpen their talent and overall skill set. From in-house design departments to advertising agencies to small design studios – all have different work flows and require different design and production skills.
    Working with a temp agency allows designers to work for an employer without long term commitment to see if it is a good fit for long term employment.

    Cons

    Contractors must be adaptable, ready to hit the ground running and learn on the fly.
