    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Software Development Engineer in Raleigh, North Carolina

    Insurance costs are very high - Insurance has become very restrictive about paying for any costly medications - Almost any health issue forces you to high deductible plan - Plan administration - particularly prescriptions is poor and prone to errors (CVS) Bonuses are limited to the very top performers only

    As a contractor, I get -0- benefits. No paid vacation, no sick time.. nothing. I work and I get paid for that hour. Then I get furloughed and left to rot.
