    I worked at Rocksteady as a contractor

    Pros

    Great people, amazing parties, good benefits

    Cons

    If on a contract there is a lot of uncertainty as they do not let you know about any extensions until the very last minute.

    Advice to Management

    To have a bit more compassion for contractors as they work just as hard and are just as loyal as permanent employees
