Google is a fabulous place to work. Unfortunately, as a contractor, there is a lot of stuff that I don't get to do, and I don't get to know about. Consequently, I can't really review what it is like to be a real Googler. I have to write that I am having a lot of fun. I really enjoy getting up in the morning and going to work. I love the man I work for - he is a wonderful guy. We have a very collaborative relationship.
Google! Wow! I've never worked at any place like it, and I probably never will again unless I get another gig at Google. I got stuck with running a software development lab that is obsolete but has to remain around to support a legacy system, so I didn't get to work with the new and really cool Google infrastructure. Since I was a contractor, I had no change of moving unless Google decides to convert me to full time, which they are thinking about.
Working at Google right after High School was amazing. Spent 2.5 years there which helped me through a private college I attended while I lived in the dorms for 2.5 years.
