    I worked at Google as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch. Interesting co-workers. Free to work at own pace as long as you meet the weekly goals.

    Cons

    Low Pay. No management. Constantly compared to the team in India. Very boring, repetitive work. Zero chance to stay on full time or move up in the company after contract expires (Though the recruiters tell you it's possible.)

    Advice to Management

    Treat contract workers like the other 'real' Google employees. Full time work benefits are not expected, but at least treat your contract workers as equals.
