    I worked at Google as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Snacks, shuttle service, speed in which a contractor can move up the ranks and be a "senior contractor", utilizing many of the famous Google perks, if sometimes on the sly.

    Cons

    Zero power and zero say in constant moves and changes in role, watched any say I had dwindle by the day as roles shifted beyond my control, the dreaded RED BADGE felt like a scarlet letter compared to all of the full timer-s white badges, constantly being 5-10 years older than all new hires set to manage contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Allow contractors more of the ability to work towards full time status rather than let them fend for themselves and eventually be phased out like an old computer.

    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.
