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

    Pros

    Nice working space and grounds, mostly. Good free coffee.

    Cons

    Most people don't talk to you (as a contractor. Some managers/employees look through you and don't talk to or acknowledge you.

    Advice to Management

    Try to foster more of a team atmosphere by getting rid of the way performance is assessed for FTEs. Maybe people will feel less competitive and be friendlier, especially the women.
