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

Pros

Workplace is very comfortable. Great brand.

Cons

Huge sense of entitlement. Company is run by engineers, product owners are all ex-engineers who may or may not know what is best for consumers or the marketplace. Company does not know how to fire low performers

Advice to Management

Don't be afraid to fire low performers

    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.
