Excellent culture, great products, but watch out if you're a contract employee
CAD Manager (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – December 25, 2016
While I highly recommend taking a job at Google if one is offered to you, I would proceed with caution if you are a contract worker (or "TVC"). There are certain perks and company functions you're not allowed to enjoy, but the biggest caution is that Google is only allowed to keep a temp on for two years. If your contract is renewed after the first year, great. But if they don't hire you on as permanent by the time the second year comes around, start looking for a new gig. In theory, you can be re-hired as a TVC if you are out of the company for a minimum of three months, but I've never seen that happen.
Again, great job (and free food), but don't expect it to last longer than two years if you are hired as a contract worker.
Culture, highly innovative products
Gig as a contract worker will be two years maximum.
