Pros

Free gym membership, Interesting work, great peers in most cases.

Cons

(Yes, i'm a contractor, but a very intelligent and capable one)
Cons: No reviews for contract staff, No raises for contract staff, False promises of getting hired when in the past 3 years only 2 or so contractors have been hired.
The management at EMC will turn a blind eye to every full time staff member that sits around and plays video games on their workstations- never completes tasks- and starts trouble with other staff, but will never notice the contractor that comes in every day, works their tail off for the good of the company, supports end of quarter requirements ect.
Management is too reliant on the words of corrupted staff members. If a staff member (especially group leaders) doesn't like a contractor, all they have to do is make up a reason and the management pounces all over it- thus ensuring the contractor will never ever be hired.

It looks like people who are given any position of responsibility in EMC have served some sort of military. This would be fine, except just because someone is in the military- it doesn't make them a good leader or even good with people.

Advice to Management

Review your leadership staff- especially on the lower levels.
Get rid of the dead weight staff- I.E, those that talk at their group leaders stations all shift, those that refuse to do certain tasks, those that do not support E.O.Q requirements.
Hire on deserving contractors.
Give a raise to contractors that have been there at least 5 years... there are a TON!
