    I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good W2 hourly rate. End of contract is always in sight.

    Cons

    They treat their contractors like a red-headed step child. A group that is in trouble will hire a contractor to be the fall guy. Just know up front what you are getting into.

    Advice to Management

    Stop rewarding for individual achievement and push towards team achievement. Makes for a less hostile environment.
