Pros

Really smart people, great benefits, amazing level of transparency and access, people -especially at the top are really committed to "getting it right"

Cons

Essentially Google has more than a few terrible middle managers. This is mostly because the really great people will often leave for school or more lucrative opportunities (because getting promotions can be very difficult) and often the people who stay are those who bide their time and are solid but not rock start performers. So your Google experience will depend a lot on who your direct manager is...

    Pros

    The company allowed me to achieve growth and a better willingness to learn! I was able to advance from working within groups.

    Cons

    It was under a 2 year (only) temporary contract. It gave little growth for promotion within the company. I would have loved to get hired in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep giving young adults the opportunity to work for a great company. Maybe more promotional moves will be highly appreciated!
