    Little to no help or support when you look for a new contract after your previous one has ended

    Pros

    For the most part, the Resource Managers (at least in my experiences) generally leave you alone and don't interfere with your work during the contract.

    Cons

    After your contract is up, good luck in getting anyone at Excell Data to take any interest in your search for a new contract. This may be due to the sluggish economy right now, but it's hard to know. I want to stay at Microsoft in some capacity, as I've worked there on and off as both a Full-Time Employee (blue badge) and a contractor for more than ten years. Right now, I am WAY beyond my 100-day break, and I'm desperately looking for a new contract. On several recent occasions, I've had unanswered responses to multiple email inquiries regarding my resume being sent to MS managers. I'm at the point where I'm thinking of using a different company to obtain contract employment at Microsoft.

    Excell Data is ok for a contracting company

    Pros

    They seem to have good connections with Microsoft and a a few other companies so they can be helpful in getting a contract.

    Cons

    Most of the downsides are due to the natures of most contracts. There are problems that just come with the type of job. For example constantly changing jobs and forced time off. For some people this ok but not everyone likes this kind of work.

    Pros

    Low barrier to entry. Extrordinarily low expectations.

    Cons

    Everything else. Low motivation, no respect, no advancement support. Wage slavery.
