I worked at GSW Worldwide as a contractor

Pros

Treated as a team member and given a lot of independence. Management thanked freelancers with goody bags.

Cons

Account managers are harried and disorganized, and young. IT didn't install a critical component for me, which I didn't know I needed, and my boss blamed me for not using their system properly when trying to keep work moving through (even though he didn't use the system much himself). Account people and project managers gave differing deadlines. My contract expired but they kept me on -- however not interested in hiring me full time. Why?
A new freelancer asked me if there was work she could help me with. I gave her an easy half-hour referencing task to do and then she yelled at me when she couldn't find the file on the server. I got chastised for "raising my voice" and giving her the work without her boss' authorization. I left, she stayed and my boss was promoted. End of story.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more mature managers.
