"Great pipeline, rewarding work, on the job learning and experience. This company is NOTORIOUS for bringing on contractors/temps and keeping them on full time without converting them to permanent employees. This causes the company to spend double on a contractor (times thousands of contractors) to keep them there and the contractor gets paid half of that in return, with minimal healthcare and benefits and minimal perks."
