    Pros

    Company seems to greatly care about employees. Most management is very sympathetic and understanding. If employed as a contractor, be wary about which agency you choose as some will either take great care of you. Some will forget you exist. But none of that is any fault of Google's.

    Cons

    Contractor position, so did not receive the same benefits as full timers. Work could be a bit tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Make the contracts feel just as important as the full timers. Because they are the ones that allow full timers to forego the gruntwork.
