    I worked at USG as a contractor

    Pros

    Nice office, good location, good views, free coffee, nice cafeteria

    Cons

    IT Management really doesn't seem to want to progress based on suggestions by contractors. They are more worried about your core hours than the work one can produce. Sad, really.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the contractors you hire. You hired them for their expertise and skills. They have been around the block and know a thing or two.
