    Did they hire you? Did you pass the bar of their FTEs? I know plenty of contractors who have worked at companies I've been at, but most are brought in for low end work, so I think it's disengenous to try and carry a brand that you haven't earned , otherwise there would probably be lots of developers/engineers who suddenly worked at msft, google, fb, but never had to rise to that level

    • Eh. They didn't write the checks, but everything else is pretty much the same, isn't it? Seems a bit controlling to tell people not to say "LinkedIn (contract with x)"

    How do you expect them to say where they worked and get found - higher results with the logo vs without? They're trying to make a living too and the work itself is like an employee

    Also, not sure of the legality but we already live in times where certain groups try to make it difficult for other groups. This is such an unnecessary policing, much bigger societal issues to focus on...
