    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    One of the biggest pros is the access to knowledge. MS has a very large Library that one is afforded access to. This has proven invaluable to me as I seek to gain more knowledge of Programming techniques.

    Cons

    One of the biggest Cons is working as a Contractor, you aren't afforded the same opportunities as an FTE. While I do realize this is more my issue than MS's, I do still feel Contractors are not give the same level playing field as FTEs. I work in an ORG where a large majority of the employees are Contractors, yet we're not given the same tools as FTEs.
