You get paid. The pay is decent by market rates. But it comes with a lot of downsides. See below.
They lie about length of project. I am talking about saying a project will last 6 months and it goes 6 days. I (and others) believe this is to make you choose them over say, another being honest and saying it's a one month project.
The disrespect is unusually high, even for a contract attorney. I've heard staff openly insult co-workers. On a project where people had to travel, co-workers were put in dangerous situations and moved around to different hotels in far-flung places at night in unsafe neighborhoods to cut costs (and fatten their bottom line.)
If you're starving, you gotta do it - but if you can, go with a place that treats you with honesty and respect.
Be honest and respectful with your contractors. They're the ones making you money and paying your salaries. When the economy upticks, you guys are in trouble b/c reputation spreads (contractors all talk) and given a choice, people don't like to be lied to and disrespected.
I'm sure you get that.
disrespect, extreme cost-cutting, misled about length of project (extremely so)
