    Contract job during pandemic

    Pros

    Working as a contractor for the Vaccine4All program in through a third party travel medicine staffing agency. Great thing is that the program has done their best to renew our contracts. Directives and programs come through the Mayor's office, and it's interesting to talk to people from all over such a diverse city. AMAZING coworkers that will be friends for life. **FREE healthcare/dental - best plan I've had in my entire life** This is only because we are contracting under a healthcare company. Have had the opportunity to work in 4 out of 5 boroughs - lots of areas of the city I never experienced before - very interesting. Been WFH for 3 months and enjoying it.

    Cons

    Being in the dark for a long time about contract renewals, placement/job title changes (which was based on needs around the city). Communication pipeline issues. Catty transition from city employees to contract employees. Some managers at some locations were 0/10 and others 10/10. Luck of the draw. Schedule/location changes could occur overnight and you have to fight and call and email to avoid a placement 2 hours commute away.

    Good job to network and have on your resume, not good for salary increases/bonuses

    Jan 20, 2022 - Health Policy Analyst in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Allows you to understand the ins and outs of working at a government agency. - Helps you make connections with higher ups in the Dept of Health and network with folks from different health fields. - Great to have on your resume if you want to work in the public health field.

    Cons

    - A lot of ageism. Even if you have a Master's degree but you are not middle-aged and are younger, they will start you off on a lower salary which will take years to build up. Whereas other folks with a Master's degree starting in private companies will get offered a significantly higher baseline salary. - It is also difficult to advance up in a title if you're not on a "city line" (considered a city employee) as the Dept of Health has folks that are on contracts or different funding lines which makes them not be considered a city employee or be eligible for city benefits. - They dont really offer significant salary increases or bonuses. Maybe after working there for 5-10 years (depending on your boss), you will get a salary increase or bonus that is useful and better.
