    Pros

    Google has a "yes" culture were everything is possible. They encourage you to stretch your limits and go beyond the standard.

    Cons

    Life is different for Contractors vs Full-Time Employees. Reduced benefits and less perks sometimes make you feel lesser

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone as if they were full-time employees. A person's worth is not only in the color of their badge.
