I worked at Novo Nordisk as a contractor

Pros

Positive Environment
Great Corporate Culture
Good work/life balance

Cons

There may not be any room for growth in your department. The department I was in was using temps rather than create a new entry level full time role. After a while, we knew we weren't going to be hired in that department. People did successfully apply for full time jobs within other departments. However, know that Kelly Services will ask that you disclose to them and your supervisor that you are applying for positions within the company, which can be a double edged sword.

Advice to Management

Provide reviews to contract workers- have regular constructive 1:1 and tell people what they are doing right and how to improve if they are doing something wrong.
Be clear about what needs to happen.
People should be trained by the people they report to to ensure quality control over the training process. Contract workers should not be the ones to train new contract workers.
