If you are a contractor ( orange badge) you can be either a v- vendor or an a- agency.
Both of these offer benefits but if you are an a- you will must take off 100 days and essentially go on unemployment or have your spouse support you or work in another company. Many of these jobs do lead to full time FTE employment.

Management has good and bad folks, like anywhere. Although I would say there are a huge amount of greencard immigration-working on resident temporary Visa status Managers that make business cultural norms at times difficult to discern and to navigate.

This is technology- you will work harder and longer.
Best to attach to a good Sr. mentor and know your stuff. Sadly a few do not.
Good work life balance, best I have seen.
