Google is an amazing company, with lots of amazing perks... If you are a FTE or "Googler" If you are a TVC "contractor" then none of that applies to you. You are paid almost nothing and expected to do the same, sometimes maybe even more work than full time Google employees are expected to do. You may be given a day off because Google is off, but some of us don't get paid for those days. When you are working on a budget that is really hard some days (especially near the holidays) Work is very stressful at times and instead of finding ways to improve our work environment, they take more things away. But there are incredible benefits too like free food, snacks and drinks as well as full featured gyms and pools., and very flexible hours.
Free Food, flexible hours, gym, pool.
stressful work environment, low pay for work required.
