    Pros

    Very flexible work schedules. Work from home or don't work at all. No one cares.

    Cons

    No accountability. Too much bloat. Get ready to change your culture if you're American.

    I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (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
