    Pros

    The ability to work virtually means more flexible hours, you gain lots of experience very quickly, and your colleagues are extremely willing and able to answer questions and help get you settled in during your first few weeks.

    Cons

    When most colleagues are working virtually you can start to feel isolated, but everyone does the best job possible of keeping up communication via emails, phone calls, google hangouts, etc.

    Advice to Management

    The line of communication being open is vital, so continue to keep it this way.

    Pros

    I am fortunate to have an exceptional Recruitment team (Carissa and Shawn) who have placed me with a great company for a long term contracting assignment in Los Angeles.

    Cons

    My contract is ending in early Fall and I have come to love the company i am contracting with. I am hopeful I will have a positive exit as I train my replacement and possibly a new assignment or similar will follow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
