I worked at Agilent Technologies as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay was OK... not great. Big Company.. easy to get lost. Duties of a contractor are light since they lock you out of meetings. Very friendly person who apologized about how they officially treated me. I did get free lunches.. unofficially.

Cons

Pay was OK... not great. As a contractor, your duties are lighter than full time persons. They lock you out of meetings, company events, card key different, not really part of the team in Engineering. $$They rarely convert Contractors to Full time...$$$ Contract agencies take 1/2 of salary.

Advice to Management

Convert more contractors to full time and not treat them so poorly.
