    Pros

    Career development is always top of mind for managers at Google. I love that we can work on a variety of projects.

    Cons

    Time is always a battle here, there are 19 priority projects that all need to get done in parallel, so you often feel like you're always busy. The feeling is great because you get a sense that you're working on big projects with large impact, but whew, you get tired sometimes.

    Pros

    The culture is wonderful - aside from the free breakfast and lunch provided in the cafeteria every day and the many mini kitchens around the building with an array of healthy snacks, it affords you the opportunity to think creatively, try new things, and provides work/life balance. The people are fantastic and the work is engaging and challenging.

    Cons

    The only disadvantage in being hired as a contractor is that the odds of being converted to a full time employee are slim to none. But on the flip side, the experience sets you up for success with competitors - I've known other contractors with 1-3 years of Google experience to be hired at companies like Go Daddy, Amazon and Apple.

    Advice to Management

    None.
