    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, and nice people. Hours are the same as full-time staff; hence, the work-days are just the right length.

    Cons

    City has to appease the union...contractors are let go frequently. The goal is to limit contractors to 6 months or less...preferably less. As a result the politics can be bad. The pay is less that what you can make elsewhere too.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more feedback to contractors.
