    Pros

    Good infrastructure. Good opportunity to work on interesting problems. Good place to learn how to be a professional software engineer for beginning engineers.

    Cons

    Lack of innovation. The heyday of Google seems to be passed. Things are good but probably not as perfect as you might imagine it because the hey day has passed.

    Pros

    - Sets the bar for employee perks
    - Work with some of the best in the industry
    - Develop content on projects used globally

    Cons

    - Sometimes a bit too relaxed
    - Lots of internally developed tools that can only be learned on the job

    Advice to Management

    Can feel a bit fragmented internally among the various teams, and it is challenging at first to understand the various groups, their roles, and how to get certain tasks done.
