Great employer contracting to a not-so-great client.

Data Quality Analyst (Former Employee) Schenectady, NY

ProsCompensation is slightly above market, great benefits, exposure to some very interesting work matter. Service managers will go to bat for you and represent their labor force very well. Very safety-oriented and provides internal education for site safety and safety improvement.

ConsWhile you're a Granite employee, you're a contractor to General Electric and must suffer the whims of their bureaucracy. You get all of the great stress from working on GE schedules and GE subject matter but are often left out of perks such as gatherings, achievement tchotchkes, or other types of recognition. Little to no advancement options as a contractor. Some GE people will not treat you fairly or give your work equal weighting compared to inside work.

Advice to Senior ManagementHold clients to their contracts and responsibilities at all levels of management.
