    I have been working at Glacier Technologies as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Supervisors understand that they are working with adults who understand that they are responsible and capable people. Micromanagement doesn't seem to be a problem, however, we were told that if an employee or team wasn't doing the job, that these people will be closely monitored and supervised. Travel and hotel expenses are provided for with per diem.

    Cons

    I don't really see any cons at this point.

    I worked at Glacier Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Glacier paid for training, provided decent benefits, and the checks cleared without any kind of supervision or management.

    Cons

    Glacier provided a paycheck, but no feedback, no career development, and no project or professional support.

    Advice to Management

    Retain employees by proactively managing opportunities, and planning future placements. O other words, be a consulting company and not just a body shop.
