is this a properly done rubber roof?

hi guys,
Im building (remodeling) an old house here in chicago and my conractor installed a new rubber roof. the sloping did not look right in the first place and when I checked one day after it rained, it looks like the roof is just collecting sitting water (look at the pics below).

my questions here are:

(1) is this a properly installed roof? (it does not look like it to me).
(2) how should this be fixed? will this have to be completelly removed and redone?

thank you, ssl

ps. I cant post images here... so please see these links of my roof:

water siting on roof is not strange the pics look fine from what i can see. and i am guessing it comes with a warranty like five or ten years

Call you local building department. They may have a requirement as to a minimum pitch. I'm sure a building inspector would take a look at it as well.
