"Great place to work"

Former Contractor - Test Engineer in Mountain View, CA

I worked at Google as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great perks; food, gym, snacks, casual attire, fun environment, lots of company sponsored events

Cons

Like any corporation really, management seems to only care about what they can put on their resume. But since this is the case pretty much anyplace you work, hard to really state it as a con. Towards the end however, management started to micromanage a bit too much. This took away from the casual environment that once made working at Google so great, since employees felt emboldened and had better output.

Advice to Management

Lay off micromanagement.

    Pros

    Fantastic perks, really smart people, and a great place to get started with a career. Overall, really enjoyed my experiences there and hope the best for the company.

    Cons

    One thing that Google does a bit is hire really smart people and put them into more basic positions. A lot of people that were there when I first joined on my team are now gone, as everyone has either left to another team or left the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to keep all employees really engaged.
