    Cons

    Full-time interview difficult to get hired
    Due to time zones and high volume co-workers hard to reach or too busy
    Each technology and group acts independent due to company managed by network segment or technology thus they need better dependency communication
    Hardware procurement often has mistakes/missing hardware due to priority projects borrowing from other projects or design changes to stale projects that are way behind
    Difficult to meat deadlines due to limited on-site resources, high volume and hardware missing or delayed
    Limited resources to unmanned data centers and transit centers

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire based on PHD or MBA mainly but hire based on past accomplishments (for non-college grads). Improve full-time interview process as 10% of the Mangers time is used to hire and reject most applicants and interviews. Former contractors should be rated by past teams and hired by hiring manager no 5 hour loop just a one hour interview.
    Make a list of the top 5 issues delaying projects and come up with a company wide solution. Improve communication between groups. Managers maintain weekly team calls just one hour is enough. Keep contractors who do well why so much turn over? Balance bar raising with work accomplished. If your team member does triple the others does he need a PHD? Balance the work load some are doing heavy loads others complete much less work. Bring past good contractors back they probably will be even better after the 3 month break...!!!
