    Pros

    Great people and the environment is fun and challenging and great to work with dynamic teams.

    Cons

    100 day breaks are very frustrating to an employee and to the team, because once you get set up and running and bonded with the team you have to leave and they are left in a lurch after spending so much time training the person.

    Advice to Management

    Help the contractor, if you value them, to find a permanent place at Microsoft
