Overall good work environment at current client.
Pros: flexible work schedule, full work load
Cons: no communication from home office
Most days are routine, consisting of a daily status meeting and well defined tasks using Agile Methodology. Majority of time is spent with program development and maintenance, and either testing, or supporting testing staff.
Never used Agile Methodology before, or MFE program development. Have also had the chance to write some complicated DB2 SQL.
Supervisors at the client site have treated me well, and with respect. They have been very considerate with work schedule for things like doctor appointments and family commitments.
Co-workers at the client site have been great to work with, and most are very knowledgeable.
The hardest part has been not being a real participant in the culture at my current assignment, due to status as a contractor. I have no contact with Judge Group home office employees, and the only person I have contact with is my sales representative, who fortunately has been great to be associated with.
The best part is not being on call for the first time in my work life.
