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

Pros

Incredibly internal transparency, great compensation, and some of the smartest and most engaging people in the world. Was encouraged to pursue my passion with an extra '20%' project, and was given work that really matters.

Cons

Very flat corporate structure. This means a lot of movement laterally, but can sense some frustration with employees for moving up.

Advice to Management

Continue to explore + innovate, and keep culture of intellectual enthusiasm.

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

    Pros

    Benefits and perks, co-workers, work environment

    Cons

    Management, lack of hiring or rewarding those from within

    Advice to Management

    Look to your contractors before you look outside. There are some serious hard workers who want to become part of Google but feel there is no upward mobility and no opportunity to become permanent except for "who you know." Also, a degree from a name school shouldn't define who someone is.
