I worked at Google as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Very smart and helpful colleagues.
A plethora of cool technologies
A large amount of trust in the employees, even interns have access to a lot of confidential material.

Cons

Steep learning curve for the technologies used.
Many projects still use C++, which lacks good tool support.
Once in a while there is a reorg of projects, which is annoying to be held up by.
Differences in interview practice from office to office.

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

    Pros

    product knowledge, lot of technical learning, casual but intense pace of work, amazing food and work environment with a lot of brainy people.

    Cons

    hierarchy is creeping in, indifference towards other offices other than MTV if you are talking about new product ideas and execution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    didn't dive deep enough to advice the mgmt. Google develops awesome products. My only wish is that it should not take MSFT EEE approach as it is now an Internet giant with sufficient power to wield.
