Pros

I've heard that it all comes down to the site managers and in my experience this seems accurate. Mine were great so the experience was positive.

Cons

Holidays can be tricky in the need to provide round the clock coverage to client sites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on promoting site culture.

    Pros

    Great stepping stone to build experience and move on.

    Cons

    Managers act with impunity and often not in the best interest of employees or business. By the time this is discovered the damage is already done. Human Resources grossly understaffed and unable to serve the needs of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline, replace complacent managers and eliminate the kabal of friends looking out for each other.

    I worked at Williams Lea full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people up to a certain level - fantastic attitude / ethics, real passion for clients and delivering excellence. Lots of energy and great ideas, and strong partnership with clients.

    Cons

    From Director on up, it's totally the opposite. Reckless, arrogant, short sighted and callous. Not good. Telling management what they want to hear gets access to resources, salary increases, and an attaboy; telling management the truth gets you laid off, demoted or shuttered away in a backwater role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fifteen years ago, the industry was indeed smarter than the clients they served. That's not the case anymore. The reason your business is flattening or falling is because you've failed to see that while your competition has adapted to the new truth.
