Approves of CEO

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

Pros

You get to say you work for Google and there are a lot of fun, nerdy, impressive people to work with.

Cons

Not a lot of non-engineer opportunities. Not a lot of opportunities to move up.

Advice to Management

Be nice to contractors and give them more opportunities to convert. Seems a waste to train someone and then let them go.
