Pros: Coworkers, Training support, Team cohesiveness, Safety focus of org., Transparency of communication across borders
Cons: Short term job, Long term contracts expire at 3 years, Difficult (impossible) to get internal headcount to keep highly-trained employees, Learning lingo and shorthand - the most dense and impenetrable part of the company culture
Joined as a Surge contractor and have learned so much about a new field. My teammates have made everything interesting, engaging, and fun. The Harley I work at now is not the Harley I grew up near - and that's a great thing. Coworkers who greet you when you walk past, strangers on the line or in the professional area who crack jokes with you, and a sense of family and team from day one. Even if I don't have an opportunity to last because of the seasonality of my hire, I'm overjoyed that I had a chance to be reminded of what a great workplace is really like.
