I have been working at Google as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

You get to say you work for Google and there are a lot of fun, nerdy, impressive people to work with.

Cons

Not a lot of non-engineer opportunities. Not a lot of opportunities to move up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be nice to contractors and give them more opportunities to convert. Seems a waste to train someone and then let them go.

    I have been working at Google as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing culture, supportive managers, friendly atmosphere, and constant communication. Of course, you have to love the food, gym membership, and events on-campus. The exposure to different divisions and teams is something you don't get to experience often.

    Cons

    My position is contract, so I was only guaranteed the position for the year. Also, as a contract you are not given full benefits, nor are you allowed access/invitation to the opportunities and events on campus. I'm already reaching the 9th month of my contract and I'm on the hunt for a new job.
