Pros

As a contractor I am not saddled with long hours or the stress of caring if the company is going in the right direction, which greatly supports my work/life balance!

Cons

The software development and test teams I am part of consist of well over half of the team members being contractors. The contractor rates are low, and the quality people work hard to move on to better paying positions while the mediocre or less qualified people keep hanging on. There is little motivation to perform at high levels since there is no room for advancement or pay increase, and little likelihood of a direct position in the current environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Adding more and more contractors will not increase the speed of project completion. Focus on hiring qualified people and supplementing with contractors when needed. The culture is starting to suffer and all the cheap help in the world won't help you fix that.
