    Pros

    Perks, benefits, bonuses, pay and public perception

    Cons

    Very easy to get burned out when trying to exceed expectations. Mandatory promotions required based on time employed to meet job expectations

    Advice to Management

    Become more aware of clicks and in house cronyism that develops due to competitive nature of environment. There are those who have learned to manipulate the system to get an edge.

    This place had great benefits (like free food) but they kept us isolated from the rest of the company.

    I have been working at Google as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, take-home Apple laptop, great free food. Lots of parties, fitness centers, cars with drivers who ferry you around campus, heated spa toilet seats, bicycles to borrow and ride around the grounds.

    Cons

    Share a tiny office with multiple "cube-mates", no information shared with contract employees, difficult to know what you are and aren't allowed to do, people aren't all that friendly, and they view information as something valuable to be traded.
