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

    Pros

    Amazing culture, supportive managers, friendly atmosphere, and constant communication. Of course, you have to love the food, gym membership, and events on-campus. The exposure to different divisions and teams is something you don't get to experience often.

    Cons

    My position is contract, so I was only guaranteed the position for the year. Also, as a contract you are not given full benefits, nor are you allowed access/invitation to the opportunities and events on campus. I'm already reaching the 9th month of my contract and I'm on the hunt for a new job.
