    Pros

    Food, brand name, work culture, plush offices (all the superficial things)

    Cons

    No career track, slow career advancement, wrong person for the wrong job

    Advice to Management

    I now understand why the Google stock price is dropping. You hire incredibly over qualified people for the job and pay 2x wages for it. You would rather hire the right person for the right job and pay the right wages for it. Having a lot of cash does not mean throwing it away. Employees will only be happy to an extent on the fancy perks thrown but largely will look for meaningful roles (most employees do not say it but they are unhappy with the role they are in since it does not justify their potential)

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

    Pros

    Work in on the the worlds best company. Awesome workplace. Good Food. Timings and rules maintained well. Good food. Cool work

    Cons

    Contract job in Google is not al all considered as experience,,, donno why but feels so bad.
    No access to GOOGLERS buildings. Very large difference in contract life and permanent payrolls. Coming to work. If u do not perform well you will be put under analysis and then if u still do not perform well u r directly fired,

    Advice to Management

    Give importance to contractors(employees) as most of the work is done by the contracter employees itself
