I worked at Google as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

Still tries to maintain that start-up feel. The benefits are ridiculous. Gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner included. Unrivalled office space with on site gym, relaxation rooms, massage rooms.
The pay is good for the hours and the work done.
There are many opportunities to learn new skills.

Cons

Most engineers are not that young. So culture can be lacking compared to actual startups. Work can sometimes feel over engineered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more. Often teams are quite isolated and tend to repeat work that other teams are doing or have already done. This lack of communication kills enthusiasm for a project.

    I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with cool innovative products, in a great environment (especially in terms of positive, friendly and skilled colleagues). The brand is well known.
    You have a lot of freedom in customer interaction and in planning your projects.

    Cons

    There are not many opportunities for technical roles in this office, but this depends on specific offices.
    The base salary is not exciting, compared to other offers you can get from competitors.
