I have been working at Google

Pros

Great people, cool work, fun environment

Cons

HR is not as transparent as they say and switching between roles and getting promoted is not as easy as they claim.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be upfront with the process instead of always making things sound great.

    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
