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

    Pros

    Very smart people, great food and other perks (massages!), interesting project, good mentoring for interns, lots of events for interns.

    Cons

    Company is too big, as an intern interested in joining full-time it is hard to find out what other projects are that people work on. No general talks or internal project sites to look at.

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

    Pros

    Unlimited perks, cool office, great co-workers, etc. Even working as a contractor is a great experience. Three meals served every day, gym and personal instructors on-site, great coffee, snacks and beautiful surroundings. This is truly an ideal employer that cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Not much to add here. I wish that Google would hire more people instead of using contractors. Google is undoubtedly on of the best employers in the world but the use of contractors create a division within the company between "real" Googlers and the contractors doing the grunt work. I'm giving career opportunities a low rating because there's not really a future here as a contractor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want your employees to care about the company and go above and beyond, then do the same for your employees (incl. contractors).
