Great place to work, but the contracting experience makes you feel like an outsider

Recruiter (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Google

ProsGreat perks, work-life balance, little hierarchy, genuinely friendly coworkers, great place to network and meet future entrepreneurs, diverse workplace, LGBT friendly, open culture, smart coworkers.

ConsAs a contractor there is a lack of transparency about the opportunity for conversion to permanent roles. Also, many young colleagues complain that no other company recruits so many bright people to then put them in very low level jobs with remedial tasks.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
