I worked at Google full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

You work with I highly educated, high achieving, highly motivated bunch of very cultured people.

Cons

The expectations to do great things is difficult for a career person who happens to have a family with you children. Time management is a must.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep Rocking! The OKRS are very helpful with individual alignment.

    I worked at Google as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Employee-driven company, Great people with great minds, Fun atmosphere and lots of great perks (free food, awesome guest speakers, etc.) People are happy when they come into work. People don't want to take days off here. The rumors are true - Google is amazing.

    Cons

    Constantly having to prove your worth as a teammate. Can be very competitive and stressful (especially as a Contractor). Be prepared to work hard.

    Slackers, don't even bother applying to Google. You will get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open and mindful when it comes to your staffing strategies.
