    Pros

    The headquarters were awesome. The team I worked on was fun. It was a team with a lot of different personalities but we all got along great. The entire floor seemed to organize potlucks randomly and during the holiday season there were fun events that happened, which made people more engaged and included.

    Cons

    Since I was a contractor, I was not able to be treated like the permanent staff. Which does make you feel like a lesser worker.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your contractors like your regular workers. Even though you can’t discipline them the same, they still work hard for you.
