Google: change is needed to avoid complacency & loss of competitive edge

Strategic Partner Development Manager (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at Google

Pros2 types of people that will find a great place to work: (1) recent college or B-school graduates looking for a first job where they can learn a lot, and (2) more senior corporate executives with many years of experience who aren't overly ambitious and are looking for a role where they can put life on auto-pilot and glide through their day-to-day activities.

ConsThere is no clear career progression, and senior management is arrogant.

Advice to Senior ManagementReward employees based on achievements as opposed to favoritism by one's direct line manager. Ensure that rewards / bonuses / promotions are not entirely up to one person (ie the specific team manager), and instead need to factor in feedback and opinions that the direct line manager cannot overrule.
