    I have been working at LifeScan full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Company stability, the culture is friendly and there is possibility for advancement both within your function, or cross functionally. LifeScan can also choose to pay for your MBA if your manager approves your work.

    Cons

    At times the finance work is repetitive, constantly updating financial forecasts, and comparing each month vs the forecast. Lots of accounting and Sarbanes Oxley compliance. No margin for error. Lots of scrutiny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember to give praise much more than you criticize. Help employees develop and advance towards management, don't put them down constantly.

    Pros

    Local team has being the greatest incentive. Could not ask for a better group to work with.

    Cons

    No stability and limited growth potential if you are a contractor. If you are a contractor you be better be good friends with upper management to at least get a shot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Contractors are treated as help and even when they leave they're blood and tears on the job there is no consideration and treated as a second grade employee. This should be corrected neglecting and treating employees less than equal surely goes against your Credo.
