    I have been working at Google

    Pros

    - Exciting work
    - Can see impact of your work fairly quickly
    - Accomplished colleagues
    - Great brand recognition

    Cons

    - Increasing numbers of middle managers who add no value
    - Focus on "shiny" vs. substantive work - you're more rewarded for style than substance, splashy work gets praise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire middle managers who add no value. Unfortunately I see us hiring and rewarding people who spend more time on Powerpoint presentations than actually doing work. Growing pains of a large company or something we can avoid?
