Approves of CEO

I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Got to work with some of the smartest people I've met. Benefits are some of the best in the world. All things considered, workload was manageable and work/life balance was great.

Cons

Entry-level support positions have little job mobility and lack the glamour of other Google departments

    I have been working at Google as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, recognition and the freedom to work how you will. There is a lot going on so there is a lot of opportunity for growth and success.

    Cons

    Small fish in a big pond. Everyone there is a star so you need to get used to not being big man on campus.

    Advice to Management

    Don't start pet projects you don't intend to keep alive
