Pros

Pay was good $100/hour. Hiring was through the company's own website posted short term requirements (this was the MPRI division) and quickly set up a call back from the project manager putting the team together.

Cons

You are technically an independent contractor, billing hours through the company. There was more supervisory oversight than "independence". Lots of contracts to sign and fax/email to the HR office in Virginia (sixty plus pages). Lots of the jobs require a security clearance and sometimes the language wasn't clear (ie. "cleared for NATO Secret" just meant you had an active US Secret clearance. Filing travel expense voucher was a hassle and you needed to pay for weeks of hotel bills before the voucher was paid. Vast majority of employees and all of the supervisors were former military, so you need to adapt to that culture. Good fit with the clients though.
