I worked at Google as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Good pay, great people, very fun atmosphere

Cons

Contracted, not much hope getting white badge unless you are an ivy league grad

Advice to Management

Most Googlers live in a bubble and have no real grasp on what is going on outside their group. Everything is so last minute here it is amazing to see how little planning is actually done here.

    "Contractor - Google's people and environment are awesome, but the job responsibilities and growth rate are poor."

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

    Pros

    Everything but the job itself. Work with cool people, eat for free, and play a lot. Having Google on your resume also gives you a competitive advantage with many other employers.

    Cons

    From my experience as an entry-level contractor, I feel like it's difficult to get well-rounded experience in your practice area at Google. Google hires you to do one specific thing, and nothing more. This is even in their mission statement: better to do one thing really well then a bunch of different things. This principle is effective if you're thinking in terms of efficiency but not in terms of developing your employees.

    Also, the conversion rate for contractors is very low and you really do get treated like a second class citizen as you walk around with your red badge (...scarlet letter?).

    Advice to Management

    Focus on broadening the job responsibilities of your employees.

    I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great perks, great environment, great culture. Everybody working here is smart, friendly, and approachable. Plus, there are always awesome events; celebrities or performers coming, writers speaking about their books, etc.

    Cons

    The work can be very monotonous, as a lower level employee, input isn't really valued. As it's a very large company, the scope of what you're expected to do is quite narrow. They like you to specialize in one thing and ultimately, your value will be determined on how well you execute THAT particular function.
