Contracting Work With Hard Deadlines, Little Security
Contract Negotiator (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 5, 2018
If you are good, at analyzing data accurately you will fare well here. However, be prepared to be pushed hard as managers work to meet hard deadlines. Your work quality and speed will be compared to others on your team and managers will not hesitate to call you out if you are not meeting their expected criterion. If you do fairly well, you will likely be rolled from one project to the next for most of the year, although in recent years, they have had some dry spells lasting several months long. Lots of office politics among the managers. They talk: often inappropriately (and unprofessionally) within ear range. If you just want a quick income, this could be a very good stint. However, career wise, favoritism and office politics abound! Not a good company to work for longterm.
Cute setting, Tend to roll contractors to other projects
Competitive, Cutthroat, Pressure by managers, No benefits for contractors, High expectation w/o compensatory pay, High stress
