Great place to work, great benefits, great team environment. It has a fantastic culture internally and product to match. Growth opportunities used to be plentiful, but times have changed as the company has grown. It's harder to find upward mobility. The culture is collaborative and the global reach provides an interesting opportunity to connect with employees across departments and markets.

As a contractor, you are not expected of much performance at the same time can't excel much for career advancement. Contract agents will get you in with a lower pay in the brand name of Google. Just need to be tactful on that.
Pros
Free food, flexible working (WFH)
Cons
Contractors' separation from Googlers. Could be bullied at times

Working for Google is probably the best working experience of my life and i've worked for some of the top American advertising agencies. The corporate culture is super diverse and mature.

Free Food, not chained to your desk, no micro management

No restriction on your working environment/style, you can freely move around the office. Love working with them. Everyday has to overcome new challenges, which never make working life boring.

Fun, but not the best place to advance if you're not an engineer. The benefits, especially health ones are top notch. Since it is a massive company, you should manage your expectations on how much impact can you make in your first couple of years.

While it's great to have access to a Google office and work alongside Googlers, it can be painful to be reminded that you're a 'lesser' employee when office announcements often contain 'for FTES* only'. However, Google is a big company; each team can be very different with each other so one's experience can depend on one's team. After a restructuring, my team's new management is horrible to us, temps. Due to large volumes of turnover, our most senior manager finally met us personally with apologies and promises to fix things. Lo and behold, we all were served with a layoff notice via email a few weeks ago because the management has turned the team's model into that of vendors so all the temps will be out by the end of the year. We weren't warned before this and when people voiced out their anxiety with the aforementioned manager, she was taken aback and surprised with our reaction as she thought the news wasn't a big deal and >6 months of notice is more than sufficient. Such is the lack of empathy and connection between temps and the highest management of my team. Fyi, all the improvement measures would be thrown out the window with this change as well. *Full time employees.
Pros
Free lunch, you get to work at Google and with Googlers
Cons
You will be treated differently

A typical day at work is always productive yet not exhausting. People are very friendly. I've learned a lot during my short stint here. The management are always looking to push Google further.
Pros
Free lunches

I worked from home on my computer, uploading videos to be monetized on YouTube and generate a revenue per click on every ad. The RPM needs to stay on a higher rate in order to increase the revenue. Sharing videos on social media increases the audience which allows people to click on the ads shown on videos.
Pros
Free time management
Cons
Low salary
