Pros: work from home set own schedule.
Cons: seems like the things said about usis are running rampant here too.
Yes, you set your own schedule HOWEVER, if you want to 'supplement' your income, good luck. I consider a supplement around $1000: during a 3-4 month NO-work slowdown was $0. Zero doesn't supplement anything.
Constant pressure from contract liaisons, mentors, and Loveland alike. New investigators confused with differing guidance between help desk, liaison, and mentor. There are many rules which are ambiguous and many rules that are not rules but rather guidelines. Yes, mass confusion.
Seems like exactly what was said about USIS is occurring with Keypoint, and we know where that led. Integrity of the investigation comes the methodical approach. This is too slow for a company trying to pump out items for more $$$$.
Full-timers do really get treated Poorly and are under constant pressure to send in more items that is required by their level. Then the company takes it's sweet time to promote them to the next level. Watch out though if you are an upper level investigator and your stats have teetered a bit. Company is quick to demote, and that means less pay. Oh and they don't always just demote from one level to the next; You can be demoted two levels.
Suggestions: Look at the business model and remember how capitalism works. Pay workers, treat them well, make them feel a part of the team and they will perform well; This all increases the company profits and output.
To make them part of the team the company MUST make every worker, contractor or otherwise, feel as if they are part of the company and have a vested interest in it. Short of the long; Make your workers happy and they make money for you.
