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

    Pros

    Google treats it's contractors fairly well, giving them paid holidays (after 520 hours of work), access to the free food and the gyms, along with other great perks. It also fosters a creative, collaborative atmosphere and strives to give employees ownership over tasks and room to learn and grow in their careers.

    Cons

    My team's management is incompetent and strives to build walls between employees and contractors. They suffer from a lack of transparency, a lack of understanding about the specific work that we do, and poor communication skills. The end result is that an entire group of dedicated contractors now harbors a distrust and a dislike for Google.

    Advice to Management

    Fire my team managers. They're a waste of money.

    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    + Amazing perks
    + Extreme transparency
    + Friendly coworkers
    + Interesting problems
    + Great work experience

    I definitely enjoyed this internship and would recommend it to anyone before heading into industry as a full-time employee.

    Cons

    Actually very difficult to think of cons. I suppose it would have been nice to be in one of the "more fun" buildings than GWC.
