    I have been working at Bonneville Power as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible time allows for good work/home life. If you're a Fed you can pretty much walk in whenever, sit back, do nothing, and still get paid. If you're a contractor, still have good flexible time schedules, rest is very highly dependent on which organization and group you work with.

    Cons

    No consistency between groups or organizations. Nobody seems to be on the same page, whether projects, standard practices, or even general company direction. Constant backbiting and generalized hostility between groups that are dependent on one another. Management appears to be completely clueless and rarely listens to the advise and opinions of their more highly qualified contractors. Company throws money into grandiose projects that are poorly conceived and planned out at best, and often end in complete confusion, frustration, and massive irritation for those that now have to "live with it". Many of BPA's organizations, technical developers, and system matter experts appear to have no actual skill or general competences with their projects and software.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to manage IT in any shape, form, or fashion please learn something (or anything really) about it. Listen to and seriously evaluate things said by your more highly experienced contractors.
