    I worked at Google full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, plain and simple. The stock still seems to have some legs. The company leads amazing projects on the edge via the Google X division

    Cons

    Way too many middle managers. Employees are mired in cycles of performance reviews, the dreaded calibration, being graded on the curve, etc. Competitive, political workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on hiring from Consulting or MBAs; go back to your roots of valuing scrappy and digging qualifications.

    I worked at Google as a contractor

    Pros

    Google has everything and more when it comes to accommodating their employees. Even contractors have access to the many spoils that Google offers. Great resume builder and place to meet smart engineers.

    Cons

    You are a small contributor in a large operation. Not a lot of growth opportunities outside of engineering.
