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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Google

    Pros

    Very Smart people, highly dedicated and willing to all go the extra mile. I was happy to have the chance to be an intern.

    Cons

    Very much a "drink the Koolaid" culture. There are some days where I just did not feeling like acting "googly."
