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

Pros

Great people and culture. You have the autonomy to follow your interests and build your own career path.

Cons

It's a large company and with that comes bureaucracy. Execs do a good job minimizing it, but there is only so much they can do.

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

    Pros

    -you get a lot of the small perks (food, small team off-sites)
    -The workload is typically do able

    Cons

    -Conversion to full time was hard to come by
    -You tend to be reminded of all the perks that you aren't getting while still being expected to do the same sort of work at a lower price then the full time employees

    Advice to Management

    -Look to actually hire the contractors if they show they are capable of doing the job and handling the tasks given to them not just use them and let them go when the contract comes up
