I worked at Google as an intern for less than a year

Pros

- Great company culture. Valued even as an intern.
- Fun challenging projects and you learn a ton. You will always be learning something in this company.
- Very smart and friendly environment.
- As an intern, career opportunities in the sense of converting to full time is a much smoother process than applying for full time without coming from an internship. Still the process is selective but considerably nicer.

Cons

- Experience is dependent on teams. I unfortunately had a team with less energy and drive.
- Depending on the breadth of the project and whether you need to work with remote teams, it can really feel like a clanky large company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to maintain the company culture and make management decisions as transparent as possible.

    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    The environment for short-term contract employees was far more respectful, dynamic, and downright fun than any other I've experienced.

    Cons

    Short-term contracts inevitably mean high turnover and high loss of tribal knowledge, although this was mitigated to some degree by reasonable training and team structure.
