"Contract Position to Permanent"

Current Employee - Associate in Dallas, TX

No opinion of CEO

Pros

Very flexible with time off and personal matters.
Excellent contract rates.
Very independent work environment, little micro-managing.
Great, respectful management.

Cons

Transition from contract to permanent position is brutal.
Little to no feedback about what to expect regarding contract.
Rate is drastically cut from contract to permanent position.
Earned bonus program is poorly structured - you actually get paid less as you work more.
Will bring you contract at a different title, then bump you down once you "convert" over to permanent.

Advice to Management

Don't string along contract employees after you put them through the stringent tests. If they meet all the psychological/IQ testing criteria, you should know that those type of employees do not want to have their careers strung along.
