    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    very transparent - consultants are treated no differently than employees - full access - work can be lumpy but that comes with territory

    Cons

    Too large and therefore too complex an organization - hard to get a lot done quickly - too many people have to consulted on every step of the way - lot of make work
