I have been working at ICx Technologies as a contractor (more than a year)Pros
Learned several new skills on the job, and employees who had been there longer than I were friendly and willing to teach patiently. Provided training that I can carry with me to other jobs free of charge. Worked on multiple projects and work was rarely boring or monotonous.Cons
