    Advice to Management

    Stop the Jack Welch wannabe draconian tactics. Respect the people you have for who they are, not where they fit on your curve

    Pros

    People are nice and you have a chance to learn a lot on the job. Free beverages are a nice perk.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired as an FTE. Just when you think you've worked long enough as a contractor...nope.
