I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

There are a wide variety of contract types available.

Cons

A contractor can expect no consideration to be given to the continuance of their livelihood. Decisions in complete discord with any promises made during the hiring procesd can be expected. The initially stated contract length means nothing and you can expect no warning if the contract will be cut short. Even if you were let's say, in the middle of a home loan modification and loss of income would cost you your home. That would be something of no concern here despite all the early assurances during the hiring process that the contract would continue in excess of the stated length in the job req.
it's truly reprehensible, the degree to which the value of a contracted worker has become here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Adopt polices where you actually have some concern for the well being of people coming to work there, even if they are contractors. We're people with lives as well as your FTEs.

    Pros

    Depending on your group, it could be a very easy learning curb.
    Very knowledgable employees, most with decades of experience

    Cons

    They don't really put any emphasis on your educational background, just the years you've been with the company. Horrendous upper management, who won't fight for you when the time comes for a promotion. Also no direction on the future of the company
