    Current Contractor - Marketing Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is always a new project to work on, and very collaborative people to team with. Nothing is ever not considered, and diversity thrives.

    Cons

    The effort verse reward scale is always in the effort camp for a lot longer than the reward, which can be disheartening at times. With such a high percentage being red badges (contractors), there is a sense or inequality at times amongst teams, especially when the rational for conversion to blue badge (permanent) is not always consistent across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have better and more constructive reviews for contractors.
    Have progression and mentoring programs within teams to support dedicated individuals aspirations at being considered for blue badge (permanent) status.
