I have been working at United Airlines as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Very co-operative team mates.
Boss with a very good understanding.
If you do a good job you easily get recognized in the upper management.
Let you do your work as you see fit and don't try to micro manage their employees and contractors alike.

Cons

Sometime have to work late nights specially when something need to be done in live systems as this is the time they have least traffic.
