I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It's a meritocracy of ideas... I had the great fortune of proposing and executing on many rewarding projects. If you have an idea and it makes business sense, you will get the green light here. It's amazing.

Cons

Google is not a vey diverse workplace, but I did like most of the people I worked with.

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

    Pros

    Crazy delicious food. Panoply of tools, support, interests, hobbies at your fingertips.

    Cons

    Contractors are hired resolve FTE problems: OOD, conflicting, and incomplete documentation stemming from faulty/hostile communication, inconsistency/collisions w/data definitions/naming/use/workflow.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook the bombastic & passive aggressive behaviors that are rocks in the river for smooth transitions, esp. forward/backward compatibility. Any developer can crank out lines of code. Good design requires honest architectural practices.
