    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 have been working at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Awesome place to work if you are a software engineer, are under 30 and thrive in an intense metric-based environment. Lots of smart people, lots of incredible perks.

    Cons

    Engineering is king so if you are working in some of the other departments, like HR/staffing, you may not feel as "special". The conversion process to go from contractor to FTE is flawed and they string you out to the end of your contract. Ideal candidates are 2-3 years out of a top-tier university; staffing experience not required. Experienced recruiters and sourcers are better off going elsewhere as Google doesn't appear to value seasoned professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Youth looks good on paper; you can hire 2 recent grads for the compensation required of an experience professional and groom them as you like but Google should place more value on maturity and experience.
