I have a friend who just got out of the military- moved to Florida for a role with Northrop. Has been awaiting special program access, but Northrop won’t start him until that happens. Been ongoing for 6+ months...he was able to extend his active duty time and then picked up some full time work with the guard. I don’t know anything about Northrop or the client- but seems very sketchy considering the duration and lack of communication from company. Anything he can do?

I was just pitched a new “style” of software agency with open, SaaS-style pricing pages (weekly rate per person) and a sign up flow to start your project (think app development). This, in theory, helps them bring on smaller companies as clients that aren’t appropriate for long-tail enterprise sales. What are your thoughts on this approach?
