I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

They value your ideas. The employees were happy to work there. Awesome food, awesome people, awesome projects. Flexible working hours, and everyone were dedicated to their job!

Cons

Of course the expectations are high. It might be hard to work with people in different countries states when you work on the same project.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!

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

    Pros

    Good co-workers, smart people move on fast.
    Get that name on your resume.
    Gives your leverage to get a good job afterwards.

    Cons

    After all the interviews, they have nothing to offer you other than status for your resume.

    Advice to Management

    Don`t be evil.
    Stop canceling projects, too many things going on, can`t get anything right.

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

    Pros

    The sense of community, work life balance, sheer intelligence of your coworkers, and grand thinking are what I loved more about Google. I learned a ton and gained a new desire to dream big in my career.

    Cons

    Only con is that I was a contractor, not privy to some of the internal company information, and didn't get a conversion after my year long contract was up. I would go back and work there in a heartbeat for the right job.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer contractors, more employees! It seriously makes all the difference in morale and productivity. And I wouldn't have spend my last 3 months focused on a job hunt instead of my actual work.
