I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The best part about working at google is the culture. Everyone is friendly and amazingly smart which has inspired me to be innovative in the way I approach projects.

Cons

The only downside for working at Google is being surrounded by delicious free food which i always want to eat. I've gained some weight while working here but at least they have gyms to help you burn it off.

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

    Pros

    Free (delicious meals). Great environment.

    Cons

    No benefits. After two years of working myself to the bone without claiming overtime, I felt disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize who deserves to be full time - especially after the long hours and full dedication. Not everyone deserves to be discarded so quickly. Some of us worked hard to be noticed and never had a chance.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Free food, this is the best part in Google.
    2. Talented people around you, and you will learn in day to day activities.

    Cons

    1. Long working hours, no work-life balance.
    2. If you work only for 40hours, you won't get promoted and you will be sacked.

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees.
