I have been working at Microsoft as a contractor (More than a year)
Easy to work in the environment they provide. Flexible work situations. I can work from home in order to concentrate more intensely. Managers were easy to talk with and communicated their needs to me in a way that was urgent but not intimidating.
The only things that I feel uneasy about have to do with the way contract employees are treated sometimes with derision or indifference. Also there is a lack of commitment to hiring artists full time. It does happen but after working as a contractor on and off for over 15 years for them I would have thought there would have been an opening for a full time position.
Advice to Management
Allow for more inclusion of contractors on meetings that will help them get their work done. More information about the product's direction that we are working on will help in the long run.
