    Pros

    Best co workers in the world. Google has created an environment that fosters friendship among peers & bosses. How? Subordinates review their bosses....bosses have limited input on direct reports. Peers review peers during bonus time. With this type of strategy, it creates a reason to be friends. And it works! Also general perks are amazing. Google always try to stay one step ahead in benefits. Also unlimited food.

    Cons

    We're packed like a can of sardines. MTV campus is way overloaded. Wether at your office, cafes, in the loo - people are always around.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up Executive team. Keep building the mobile momentum and everything else will follow.

    Great company. I really enjoyed working here a lot. It was really good to work here.

    Eh, there were some things that it could have done better. I have seen other companies that do different things.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend doing things differently but then some things better than others. I really like that a lot that you would do that.
