    I have been working at Google

    Pros

    It is an evenvironment in which everyone participates and contributes; unlike previous environments that have numerous employees that are just putting in time

    Cons

    Since the environment is one in which everyone must participate, it is difficult to pull back (e.g. girfriend breakup)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, you are doing well and provide a good working environment

    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?
