Thanks for the information.

For the past few years I have felt the strong shift of salaried employees to contract. While I don't see it as a negative, I am concerned for continuity. With my experience with contract workers there is always a training period where you attempt to bring them up to speed on the project and methods of a company.

What I wonder about is what people will be kept on board at all times to make sure things aren't missed and what process will be put in place to ensure that quality is maintained.
