Some flexibility, but management is indifferent.
Metadata Librarian (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 17, 2018
Typical day?: Unfortunate but true, as a contractor, you are a second-class citizen at many organizations.
What I learned?: On a positive note, you can almost always learn something on the job.
Management?: Trying to be nice, but management is almost nonexistent.
Workplace culture?: Once again, you are a second-class citizen.
Hardest part of the job?: Most of the time, it's just trying to find out what's going on.
Most enjoyable?: Not being micro-managed.
Low pay, lack of feedback or recognition, no incentives or advancement opportunities
