I worked at Pacific Gas and Electric as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

There are a wide variety of contract types available.

Cons

A contractor can expect no consideration to be given to the continuance of their livelihood. Decisions in complete discord with any promises made during the hiring procesd can be expected. The initially stated contract length means nothing and you can expect no warning if the contract will be cut short. Even if you were let's say, in the middle of a home loan modification and loss of income would cost you your home. That would be something of no concern here despite all the early assurances during the hiring process that the contract would continue in excess of the stated length in the job req.
it's truly reprehensible, the degree to which the value of a contracted worker has become here.

Advice to Management

Adopt polices where you actually have some concern for the well being of people coming to work there, even if they are contractors. We're people with lives as well as your FTEs.

    Pros

    Great people and excellent team work creates a wonderful working environment. Daily meetings keep everyone up to date and defined high priority task that need to be completed. They also use Quality Center which is a great tool for defect tracking

    Cons

    Over time is often required which can be difficult when it is requested at the last moment. It would be great if they would use more automation as most of this testing, at least for the project I was working on, was done manually - which is very time consuming.
