I worked at Google as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Great perks (food, gym), great kudos.

Cons

Was not inspired by the work I was doing, there are lots of smart people doing very mundane jobs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Push the interns harder.

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

    Pros

    It's very dynamic. You meet a lot of different people. You get to liaise with different sites around the world and you learn a lot of new skills

    Cons

    it's a temporary contract and the full-timers can be a bit snobby. Things can be disorganized and everybody doesn't want to take the blame as they're affraid they might lose their job. It's a temporary contract as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They could add more challenges to the project
