"Misleading job terms, sweatshop conditions, sewing circle culture, do not want"

I worked at InterContinental Hotels Group (Less than a year)

Pros

If you can get into the right group/pod, it's probably a decent gig for a long-term contractor.

Cons

Unfortunately, I will never know, as I was put into a group with a bunch of bitter, miserable Java devs with Napoleonic complexes, among other crippling social deficiencies. Project lead was a backbiting gossip queen who did nothing but talk shiz about anyone and everyone as soon as they left the room. They also completely misrepresented my job duties, and when I objected, they booted me. Outside of the pod, you have Indians that glare at you in the hallways, as if you're the one invading THEIR country. Then there's the working conditions: they put multiple people in the same cube, and actually have some sitting out in the hallways. Someone forgot to tell management this is a first-world country, not Bangalore.

Advice to Management

If you want people to conform to job requirements they weren't hired for, tell them this before they waste their time there.
