Pros

Culture of willingness to help and educate; lots of cross-team collaboration and mutual support (successful 80-90% of the time);

Cons

Very busy work days / weeks; difficult to insert personal development time / self education; expected 50+ hr weeks; Somewhat balanced by opportunities for work/life balance schedule / remote work

Advice to Management

More recognition for contingent workers who aren't eligible for bonuses, awards (most of the time), or other recognition programs - yet many times doing the same jobs / working alongside the FTEs. Also no programs for training / supporting career growth of contingent workforce - even after working as contingent for 5-10 years

    Pros

    Great people, flexible schedules and not too many office politics.

    Salary increases are not the norm here even if your up for a promotion. Lack of salary budget is common.
