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

    Pros

    Working with some great people.

    Cons

    Very nepotistic. If they want to push their useless relative through interview they do everything and you're out of job no matter how great you were, how much overtime you spent there, how much you cared and did your absolutely best. And the saddest is that the management cover each other back in this dirty game.

    Advice to Management

    Change the management. Give the roles to people, who really understand the business and care and who are not your relatives.
