    I worked at Google as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great people, great work, great ambitions, and great food. Google has a positive outlook on the world, and strives to make it a reality. I loved working with so many talented, insightful, and human people.

    Cons

    Hiring can easily take six months, even internally. This leads to a drop in worker retention overall.

    The job can be very demanding, and sometimes the team-scale management doesn't know exactly what they want out of their teams. New groups growing and sunsetting often means that metrics need to be measured often, but sometimes they have no idea what metrics to use. This can cause some teammates to "fall behind" the rest when quantity outweighs quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to work with your colleagues in order to best understand how to leverage their strengths. Trying to shove people into roles they may not be suited for should be avoided at all costs.
