    I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch every work day, game rooms with pool / foosball / ping pong / console gaming, kitchenettes with snack and beverages replenished twice per work day

    Cons

    The ratio of full-time employees to contractors is 1:100 for the Bothell office, There is very little chance at promotion for an astonishing amount of work completed beyond what's required

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to analyze the qualifications and competency of team members, instead of trusting others, before making a decision of who to promote and who to end contract with.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people, the culture, and the constant innovation - makes coming to work everyday a fun routine.

    Cons

    We've grown too quickly, making it difficult to get things done as quickly as we were able to years ago. We've also focused on hiring elite students and MBA grads, who don't always have the street sense needed in a dynamic and changing sales organization.
