    Current Employee - Financial Analyst in Rochester, MN
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits, and a great name on the resume.

    Cons

    Managment will tell you what you want to hear, but the truth will be completely different. When getting an offer, they tell you it will be reg full time, and most times you become a long-term suppelmental (basically contract) you get less benefits compared the regulars. They tell you that you will be converted soon and it takes years no matter how hard you work. Over worked, under paid. pay is 40K in rochester, no matter what, no negotiations, and unless you want to live in Rochester, MN, stay away. Not worth the stress.

    Advice to Management

    Try treating your employees with respect and stop looking for ways to screw over your employees. High turnover is because how you treat your employees. Also, stop worrying about the street and screwing your employees.
