    I worked at Carlson Companies as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Collaboration with cross functional teams was open and receptive

    Cons

    Was not invited to staff meetings or other regular "employee" meetings where sharing of my professional experiences and knowledge would have been helpful to improve their daily process and add value to their bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
