Is it worth it to leave a current FTE perm role to work for Google as an freelancing executive producer, 6+ contract with possible extensions pending budget, performance etc? Debating the massive brand name and experience but leaving job security etc. for it

If it doesn't work you will always have in your CV that you worked with Google on a project, many doors will open for you, be sure of that.

Not at all, if you feel that the system is not suitable for a secure future job, do not take that step, first take a good look at the options for success and consider your job security very well.

My 2 cents: This seems very risky with the current state of the economy. Extension after 6 months doesn't seem likely if the expected recession hits. Working for a big brand like Google definitely has its pros, but the type of employment would make me nervous.

Considering there is a recession on its way, I would be wary of changing from a permanent role to a freelancing position. Even if it's Google, I don't know if it would be great for you. Think long and hard before jumping into any decisions.

Maybe I'm insane, but I'd do it. After all, having Google on your resume will be huge for you moving forward. Just make sure you're not burning bridges anywhere and you'll be good. Of course, in the end you decide what to do.

Given the looming recession I would say go for stability.

I started a new full-time job 3 months ago. My teammates only escalate small mistakes to my boss; I rarely get positive feedback on the things I go above and beyond on. I have a review coming up this week, and I don’t feel secure. A role that I applied to pre-covid became available. I got a verbal offer last week. Should I leave a full-time gig for a temp-perm one? I’ve killed myself to implement constructive feedback but I’m scared it wouldn’t be enough.

During interview I was speaking to the hiring manager. Felt interview was going well. He seemed impressed by my answers, excited by my skills, and even gave me a tour of the office. At the end, he asked about my home life. When I spoke of my 3 young kiddos, the manager got a little taken back and replied Oh you have children? I said yes ages 3, 5, and 7. He then proceeded to ask me about daycare arrangements and if I can be reliable. Red flag as his demeanor changed and made me feel unworthy.
