    Pros

    Co workers are all nice people willing to share system and technical knowledge.

    Cons

    Too many projects assigned to too few people making for long work hours. Old grungy office settings create a dismal working environment. To move up the ranks, one has to be an employee there for years if you can survive the layoffs. Too many layoffs laying off too many people. Too many people to report to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management only seems concerned about their bonus checks.

    Pros

    Temp work. It was a gig that put money in my pocket during a tough economy while i was looking to start that a career in the industry i studied towards when I was in college. For some people there is a chance of being hired on, albeit that chance is slim. those are about the only pros i can think of...

    Cons

    -I was a temp worker and the sectionheads (who are the lowest of the low when it comes to the chain of command) are on a powerbinge who loved to instill fear reminding you that all they have to do was call the temp agency to replace you. Sometimes they would make promises, like they will "hire you soon" just to keep you around, but if you know that the comany can barely pay its own venders (credit holds across the board) then what are the chances of them hiring you and expending the wage expense.

    - your co-temps, they are a rag-tag group and sometimes hard to be around.

    -awful pay

    -repetitive work

    -Frequently laid-off and rehired due to cyclical droughts of on-hand work.

    -Family run company, and its thier way or the high way and not always open for suggestions.

    -Spineless HR. They are terriffied of thier own employees and rarely will just fire incompitent workers, that way in order to avoid lawsuits and acusations. Usually the problem workers are just moved to another branch to avoid further issues. Often they will clean house with sweeping layoffs, usually then, they will get rid of the incompetant workers.

    - Top heavy Corporate Structure. Everybody is a sectionhead, manager, or supervisor that is in charge of something. Even if its the smallest area of operation. this leads to a contradicting orders and an overall communication break-down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Take the time to treat the temps better and they will be more feel more valued, that way you will avoid a Quality Control issue and in turn have a better relationship with the clients (i.e. Comcast Verizon, Cox, Nortel)

    - Dont be afriad to fire people becuase they are incompitent, they drag everyone else down with them.
