    I worked at Microsoft as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for the position, looks good on the resume, and you get really good experience. Lots of work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    As a contractor, be prepared to have FTE's treat you nicely in meetings and ignore you in the hallway. No chance for pay raises, and mandatory 6 months off unless your are on a managed service. Benefits are bad since you're getting them from your recruiting agency.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of vendors and contractors, just hire people.
