Pros

Brilliant co-workers, excellent perks, collaborative internal culture.

Cons

All things hinge on your manager and if they're not very good this will harm you.

Advice to Management

More oversight on low-level managers. They can ignore their responsibilities and suffer no consequences. Those consequences are borne by their direct reports.

    Pros

    All of Google's famous job perks for working at headquarters

    Cons

    They took away our ability to bill for overtime part-way through our contract and greatly diminished our annual salary ranging from $20k-$40k per year.

    Advice to Management

    If management plans on changing compensation mid-contract at least provide a few weeks notice instead of telling everyone the weekend before so that no one can make preparation to the sudden change in pay. It was extremely upsetting for everyone on the team.

  2. Good company
