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

Pros

Benefits, perks, interesting projects, learning and growth opportunity. Google offers a lot of career development, and even a lot of entertainment onsite.

Cons

Overheads of checking in codes, politics in certain groups. Sometimes people are spending a lot of time working just on trivial stuff.

Advice to Management

Focus more on technical stuff

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

    Pros

    Outstanding perks and rewards, high expectations, challenging work, lots of empowerment and minimal micromanagement, good collaboration, good lateral and vertical mobility, smart and do-the-right-thing colleagues, fair and unbiased feedback and performance evaluations, very transparent and good access to leadership.

    Cons

    Even the best big companies have some amount of politics and some amount of duplicate or discarded work. Plus, when you've got a lot of people working on something, the work is sharded into smaller and more specialized bits, and some of those are naturally less interesting than others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Keep thinking big and long term. Keep moving forward.

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

    Pros

    Amazing place to work. The perks are crazy and well document so I won't repeat them here. They really take care of their people and make sure all our needs are taken care of.

    Cons

    Your manager can make or break you. With the right manager you'll be promoted quickly and work on awesome projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in your people! You're doing great
