Great place to work

Former Contractor - Test Engineer in Mountain View, CA
Former Contractor - Test Engineer in Mountain View, CA

I worked at Google as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great perks; food, gym, snacks, casual attire, fun environment, lots of company sponsored events

Cons

Like any corporation really, management seems to only care about what they can put on their resume. But since this is the case pretty much anyplace you work, hard to really state it as a con. Towards the end however, management started to micromanage a bit too much. This took away from the casual environment that once made working at Google so great, since employees felt emboldened and had better output.

Advice to Management

Lay off micromanagement.
