    Heavy reliance on temporary employees creates disorganization and low morale.

    Pros

    Good benefits such as 401K matching, good health coverage, flex time. Also many discounts such as mobile phone service, banking, etc.

    Cons

    Poor working conditions including working past midnight, being denied lunch or dinner, working without heating or air conditioning, working more than 7 days in a row. The work week is supposedly 35 hours, but even if one is coerced into working 70 hours a week, there is no overtime pay, no bonus, no raise, and no thank you.

    The use of many short-term employees is expensive and drains valuable time. There is no training for new employees and many projects run into roadblocks as a result of inexperienced individuals who, through no fault of their own, cannot do what is expected of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recent lack of planning (and the reason why so many temps are hired at the last minute before a deadline) has caused such a rush on projects that product quality has dropped drastically. I question how long this business practice is sustainable.
