I have been working at Google as a contractor

Pros

Obvious pros, free food, smart people, amazing environment

Cons

If a contractor, can be very different to convert to full time depending on which team you are on. Definite second-class feeling on campus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider some contractors for full-time openings if they are doing well in the current job and meet the criteria

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

    Pros

    The work is pretty good if you choose your teams wisely.
    The Perks are awesome - it's the gold standard against which other tech companies are measured
    Free gourmet meals

    Cons

    Since it's a big company, there will be SOME teams with un-interesting work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep the culture as vibrant as it is - culture is increasingly considered a crucial factor for new people to join a company

    I worked at Google

    Pros

    Google offers an environment that allows you to focus on your work. They take care of your three meals if need be, offer classes of all sorts, provide you with the space to rest, and etc. Even if your work is demanding, it is very easy to relax and take a break.

    Cons

    I would have liked more opportunities to meet different people. In general I think it is a quiet office where people work a lot.
