    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Austin, TX
    Current Contractor - Anonymous Contractor in Austin, TX

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

    Pros

    Great compensation (until they cut all overtime in the middle of the contract), able to work with some of the best recruiters in the industry, flexible hours, free breakfast and lunch from in-house chef, tons of snacks, fun office events such as high profile guest speakers and occasional catering from local restaurants and farmer's markets

    Cons

    management has set unrealistic hiring goals, office politics are through the roof, cut throat work environment, low conversion rate from a contractor to a permanent employee, high expectations and unrealistic hiring goals lead to long hours even though overtime is not an option
