    Late update....

    Bounced on previous job after 3 months, way better opportunity besides couldn't stand the job, bait and switch.

    Bouncing once again, actually made it 6 months!  Keep in mind this was a 3 month contract, that kept rolling every 3 months, next review cycle is Sept 1st.   0 stability, hence the high pay for the locale.

    Title:  Business Systems Analyst (The role is an architect level role this company won't assign that title).  1 year contract, potential 6 months right to hire and/or could role onto another project after 1 year or....   get extended for another year.  This company as far as I understand it, will only keep you on the same project for 2 years.....

    Age 44
    Hrs a week 40
    Company Size ~100,000
    Duration Starting on the 3rd, after Labor Day (US Holiday)
