    Pros

    Google has a fantastic engineering culture and an incredible practice of software development. Everyone in the company has something valuable to offer, and there's a lot to learn from the people and the organization.

    Cons

    Google is getting to be a quite large company. It's nearly impossible to know about everything that's going on in every organization. Furthermore, the love from the public has waned in recent years which can be a bit of a bummer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep increasing the company's focus on a few excellent products. At the same time, make sure it's possible for the lone employee to build something cool on the Google platform, even if it doesn't fit into one of the major products.
