    I have been working at Brook Street as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All the paper work was thoroughly informative on the company that the agency sent me to, with clear and concise maps, and background on the job required. pay was slightly above the national average, and the staff were friendly and not at all demeaning.

    Cons

    The only downside was that I was not a direct employee of the company that I was being sent to, so I was fraught with worries about being dropped in favour of other agency workers.
