I worked at Alvarez & Marsal as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Free soft drinks and snacks.

Cons

- Contract-to-perm is really just contract: I was told during interviews my position was new, only to find out I was replacing the previous contract person. At first I was given almost nothing to do for two months despite repeated requests to help or for projects. I wanted to tear my hair out, the days were so slow. Two months in, HR tried to recruit me via my personal email FOR THE SAME POSITION I WAS CURRENTLY IN. Whoops. Two days later I was told my contract would not be renewed, with no explanation for why. Then (without my having to ask) I was given plenty to do, and told I was doing a great job, until the end of my contract.
- Although I faithfully and honestly recorded my hours the entire time I worked there, when I received my final check, it was inexplicably six hours shy of the actual time I worked the last half-week. If anybody felt I was being in any way dishonest with my timesheet, I wish we could have had a conversation about it before they changed my timesheet, because I worked every one of those hours.
- They pay monthly, not bi-weekly, which is a real drag.

Advice to Management

Your "no #%@!" policy is a good one, now make it happen. I had the impression my colleagues were as miserable as I was there.
