I had a really short contract at a major tech company. It was a completely different situation, I felt that I was respected and treated well. But it was a very low paid/low skilled job. I didn't see much of any room for growth. The biggest benefit to me was that it got me an interview for an internship with that company when I went to school for CS.

I don't expect these contractors to get much long term benefit from the position. And it sounds like most quit or get fired.
