"I've been on my third assignment at Google through a staffing agency and I have to say, it is one of the best jobs I've had. With the many resources provided, I am able to work successfully on multiple projects simultaneously from inception to completion. I have the freedom to be a creative problem-solver, with the ability to think, plan and execute multiple projects autonomously. The culture at Google is friendly, approachable, resourceful, and intelligent."
