I worked at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

High salary. Many perks. Great breakfast and lunch. Working with some very smart people. Learning all the Google technology. Free phone or tablet once a year. If you worked on a cool product and post on social media, you would probably have many followers. Company encourages employees to move around within the company. Free shuttle service to work.

Cons

Working with some very smart people can also turn into a bad thing because some smart people are real a** hole sometimes. Company is getting big and corporate. 20% project is available only when 100% is done. Performance review is still a mystery to me. I had gotten bad rating for working my butt off and good rating for not doing much.

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

    Pros

    The people in my department are very nice and the perks are great. I really enjoyed working for this company. You get the opportunity to work independently and with fantastic teams.

    Cons

    Many of their employees are contract employees, so about 1/3 of their workforce is constantly moving and shifting.
