I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

There are endless projects to choose from. If you do not feel challenged enough, there is no one stopping you from trying to find another project. The amenities are great. The food is fantastic. There is something different every day of the week. It is obvious that Google loves its employees. The culture is amazing too. Each employee does not mind helping the other out if they are stuck. I feel it is encouraged to reach out to others.

Cons

There is nothing wrong putting in more than 100%, but I feel sometimes no one has a life other than working. I do not blame the company for this because they actually encourage outside activities. But you still see it sometimes. The projects are just too awesome.

    Nowhere like it... but you have to walk on water to climb beyond Snr. Manager.

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Embraces innovation. Singularly focused on the end user. Go big or go home.

    Cons

    Influx of consulting arrogance at the senior levels. Competitive.

    Regional offices are not quite like Mountain View.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start promoting your superstars vs. flying in people at the top.

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

    Pros

    The Google company culture is everything it's been built up to be. It's like working on a college campus with your friends but you really do get to do cool things that matter. You will have to opportunity to make the world a better place and help other companies use Google products to better their own businesses.

    You'll truly get to work with great teams and will find a lot of people who care about your success and are willing to help. Support from management is pretty good overall.

    The food is also fantastic.

    Cons

    Google does employ a lot of people on one year contracts. It is actually more difficult to become a full-time employee while in a contractor role than it seems to be coming from outside Google.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People who have been here for a year are a real asset to the company. They are familiar with the products and the way the company operates. They are allowed to leave and excel at other companies once their contracts expire. Management may want to rethink that.
