    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Joule Clinical and Scientific Staffing Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I thought the project was great, tremendous and laudable but the shafty situation of expecting overtime work , unpaid, was ridiculous on some gauzy promise of possible full-time job in he future is even more galling.

    Cons

    Getting taking advantage of because you have no real HR person to help with tyhings like being pressured into working unpaid overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Don't engage in wage theft. If your model is that weak, and margins that thin then go do some other kind of business please.

    Pros

    A paycheck every week. A foot in the door of a prospective permanent employer. They are very responsive when issues crop up regarding any aspect of the contract work you are doing.

    Cons

    Joule is not a bad place to work for but at the end of the day it is temporary/contract work. Benefits are poor compared to what you would get in a permanent position somewhere. Genuine opportunities for professional advancement come more from the lateral moves between contracts than anything else. Although I list this as a con, I should note that this problem is not specific to joule but a structural component of temporary employment.

    Advice to Management

    I have no specific advice. They hire out contractors and do fairly well at treating them equitably. I have some issues with regular employers who have basically come to use temp workers as a second class captive labor force (aka "permatemps"), but why shoot the middle man here? Unfortunately, this is the nature of the economy at the moment. Perhaps things will change when labor is not so much of a buyers market.
