I have been working at Cisco Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Great contractor opportunities with flexible schedules. Nice people with what seems to be a good code of conduct amongst employees. Access to most things a full-time employee would get. Very cool technology to work with -- awesome customer base.

Cons

Of course being a contractor you don't get access to their great benefit packages. Sometimes you are left out of info and distribution items in your own group simply because managers look at their "FT reports".
