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

    Pros

    Great workplace environment, good pay, great location

    Cons

    Little prospect of being made permanent if on contract, even if they get head count for your role managers make no effort to help you gain a permanent position regardless of performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring in people with no record over temps who have met and exceeded expectations
