I did worked as a contractor in both Apple and Google . Anyway Contractors are treated like second class citizens in almost all the companies in Bay Area. But I saw a huge difference between Apple and Google .
Not even a cafeteria in the contractors buildings . No company provided laptop . Pathetic parking lot..horrible restrooms..lucky to have toilet paper in the restrooms ..99% of the contractors are H1bs and from Infosys , Accenture, Wipro, CTS and all are from the out sourcing companies ..will run into thousands easily ..almost 10 buildings in arques occupied by contractors ..FTE think they are God and treat contractors like shit ..
The same crap work you do here ..better pay rates ..contractors are allowed to eat in the cafeteria .. almost all the free stuff provided to employees are provided to the contractors too..pretty decent workplace setup..contractors treated with respect ..so far no outsourcing companies ..heard HCL and Infosys got some projects in IT ..no major complaints working as a contractor in google .
Anyone worked as a contractor in Apple and google ? can share your experience ?
People put in lot of hard work to earn whatever they have and if you feel you deserve it, go earn it.
