Pros

It's a job. That's all.

Cons

Disconnected, dishonest management. Too big to be aware of employee needs/concerns. Takes advantage of contract employees (no overtime paid for 17hr days, 70-80hr weeks). Laid off twice (large groups of people, not just one) in 4 years...once via conference call!!

Advice to Management

Start treating your contract employees like people. Provide worthwhile benefits. Quit lining your pockets with contract $$ and share some of it with the people earning it for you. Compensate your contractors fairly for the work they do.

    Pros

    Good place to start and develop your career.
    Great people to be around regardless of where you work.
    You get every other Friday off.
    Good benefits
    Doesn't matter what hours you worked: as long as you worked the hours you're good

    Cons

    Have to be proactive in searching for work; can't expect work to be assigned to you immediately after you start
    Feels like you're isolated from the rest of the world

    Advice to Management

    Better communication so that the newer more junior employees can get integrated into the company better.
