    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.

    The perks are awesome. Free gym, free food, free shuttle! It's a great atmosphere to work in, the people are friendly and the campus is great.

    The work I was specifically doing was very monotonous and boring. As a contractor, I felt a tad excluded from the full experience of google lifestyle.
