'Must be willing to work under pressure' is a warning sign - DEV Community 👩‍💻👨‍💻
(This post makes a lot of good points.)
“When it comes to talking about the company values, for example, it’s always in the first person: ‘we are risk-takers, we are thoughtful and careful, we turn lead into gold with a mere touch of our godlike fingers.’ But when it comes to pressure it’s always in the second person or third person: it’s always something you need to deal with.

“Who is responsible for the pressure? It’s a mysterious mystery of strange mystery.

“But of course it’s not. Almost always it’s the employer who is creating the pressure. So let’s switch those job requirements to first person and see how it reads:

“• ‘We set aggressive deadlines, and we will pressure you to meet them.’
“• ‘We will say and do things you might find offensive, and we will pressure you.’
“• ‘We set tight deadlines, and we will pressure you to meet them.’
“• ‘We will pressure you, and we will make you work long hours.’

“That sounds even worse, doesn’t it?”

Changing demographics of scientific careers: The rise of the temporary workforce | PNAS
Contemporary science has been characterized by an exponential growth in publications and a rise of team science. At the same time, there has been an increase in the number of awarded PhD degrees, which has not been accompanied by a similar expansion in the number of academic positions. In such a competitive environment, an important measure of academic success is the ability to maintain a long active career in science. In this paper, we study workforce trends in three scientific disciplines over half a century. We find dramatic shortening of careers of scientists across all three disciplines. The time over which half of the cohort has left the field has shortened from 35 y in the 1960s to only 5 y in the 2010s. In addition, we find a rapid rise (from 25 to 60% since the 1960s) of a group of scientists who spend their entire career only as supporting authors without having led a publication. Altogether, the fraction of entering researchers who achieve full careers has diminished, while the class of temporary scientists has escalated.

Revealed: Google's 'two-tier' workforce training document
The risks Google appears to be most concerned about include standard insider threats, like leaks of proprietary information, but also – and especially – the risk of being found to be a joint employer, a legal designation which could be exceedingly costly for Google in terms of benefits.

Google’s treatment of TVCs [temps, vendors and contractors] has come under increased scrutiny by the company’s full-time employees (FTEs) amid a nascent labor movement at the company, which has seen workers speak out about both their own working conditions and the morality of the work they perform.

American companies have long turned to temps and subcontractors to plug holes and perform specialized tasks, but Google achieved a dubious distinction this year when Bloomberg reported that in early 2018, the company did not directly employ a majority of its own workforce.
The two-tier system has complicated labor activism at Google. After 20,000 workers joined a global walkout on 1 November, the company quickly gave in to one of the protesters’ demands by ending forced arbitration in cases of sexual harassment – but only for FTEs.

On 5 December, the walkout organizers published an anonymous open letter addressed to Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, from “TVCs at Google”. The letter detailed some of the material concerns that TVCs face due to Google’s differential treatment, including lower wages and “minimal benefits”.
