The good the bad and the ugly.
The good: Last year their accounting got their act together and began processing payments on time. Pricing isn't the worst.
The bad: Because of their constant turnover of employees it was maddening to deal with them. If you don't "make nice" with the accounting department your pay can be very late. They alter all the work order numbers in processing, this makes it almost impossible to reconcile with your own bookkeeping.
The ugly: No consistency. One day you are the primary vendor with demands to take a huge territory, the next day you are a secondary with work only in outlying areas. The day after that, all work is jobbed out to an out-of-state sub that will hire you at a 25% cut in pay. A few days later you are back as the primary. A few days later a new VP will decide to carve up states into unmanageable areas. It seemed that they could not tolerate the idea of a vendor having a profitable area. If they feel you are doing well they will cut you back. The idea being that you'll do a better job if you are hungry for the work.
NFN is the reason we finally walked away from this industry. Life is a roller-coaster enough without their help.
