ProsEasy to move up or relocate
Flexible work schedule allows for someone who wants to go to school and work a full time job
Management tries to accommidate your needs

ConsSome places the pay is low and does not match the work done
Can take a while to get hired on and even longer to be placed at permenant site

Advice to Senior ManagementSpeed up the hiring process as far as back ground checks
Be more aggressive in securing contracts so that people that have been stuck at the same job for years have a chance to move up rank

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
