I have been working at Special Counsel full-time (less than a year)

Pros

I had a long assignment with Special Counsel. The pay is decent and overall I had a good experience.

Cons

Some of the team leads were not qualified and made bad decisions, however that could be the case as any place of employment. Overtime would be nice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Team leads should have more experience.

    I have been working at Special Counsel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The staffing coordinators are very friendly and personable. If you build a personal relationship with them, they will go above and beyond to find a project that is the right fit for you. They want all of us to succeed. Some of the projects also have flexible scheduling, although it just depends on the client.

    Cons

    The downsides of working here are the same for contract work in general, in that the projects are not always consistent and there is no guarantee of future employment. The benefits are not great either. There are multiple plans to choose from but they end up being rather pricey for the coverage you receive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The holiday and vacation/bonus pay programs are designed to reward people who have worked a lot of hours for the company over the year, but the requirements are way too stringent and often don't end up rewarding deserving employees (for example, we are required to work the day before and the day after a holiday to qualify for seven hours of holiday pay - makes it difficult to have a life outside of work and still get the modicum of benefits offered).
