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 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Google LA office is fantastic. The office is located in Venice just steps from the beach with some of the best facilities including a gym, dog park, roof deck, juice and coffee bar, and an amazing cafe. The office really grasps the Silicon Beach theme of the area

    Cons

    As Mountain View (HQ) continues to grow, you spend more time collaborating with others over video calls and IM, making it a more inefficient workflow
