No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Target as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Enjoyed being part of a large, multi-year project. I got exposure to several different vendors as well as a more structured approach that comes from a formal PMO.

Cons

Commuting to Minneapolis every week for 14 months was a bit of a wear. Missed my family.

Advice to Management

My only real concern was that due to the large percentage of outsourcing (myself included) I didn't feel the passion of ownership that comes from a team comprised mostly of FTE staff. I would reduce the amount of contractors.
