    I worked at Nissan as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities and projects
    Higher than average pay
    Team activities and meals out
    Discounted Gym membership and good Nissan car discounts

    Cons

    Day starts at 7.55 and ends at 4.40 with only a 30 minute lunch
    We were working on Windows XP operating system
    Office politics make work difficult and leave unpleasant work environment
    Some in the office area take advantage of being left to complete own work without close supervision and will sit on Facebook, Daily Mirror and other websites while others work which leads to frustration in the office.
