Crap wages, and you will have to supply your own tools, software and hardware along with licensing, make prototypes at your own cost and will only be paid for the working final prototype component costs. Plus you will be called to meetings pretty much at random, and will have to do all the site work and installation for them. Travel costs not covered unless you put it in the exactly right format for the minute submitted, and this changes at random.

All it needs is good basic project management techniques to avoid anyone getting burned.
A specification and requirements doc.
An offer from the contractor, and an agreed dev plan as mentioned previously
Don't ask a question if you aren't willing to listen to the answer.
