Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Everything. Smart people, polite, friendly. Exciting projects and products. We get to learn so much about the tech industry and innovation.

Cons

Very seldomly, we run into bureaucracy, but thats common with large corporations. And since it is Operations, some of the projects we go into, the managers have no idea what we are doing. We all learn as we go.

Advice to Management

Have a little more insight on the project before we all dive in, which is just a minor suggestion.

    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.
