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

Pros

Benefits, perks, and the people. Everyone around you is smart and tend to get along well with one another. The benefits are great and I only pay roughly 250/mo for a large family.

Cons

Stress from being over worked, long hours at times, some people don't work well with others, and meetings are aplenty.

    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.
