Great people, but if you want a career, you have to move to Mountain View

I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

You get to work with some of the greatest people in the software industry. It was amazing place to network. Google had an excellent culture that they worked hard to build and I hope they never lose.

Cons

Google has a hard time delegating responsibility to remote offices. Projects started abroad would consistently be pulled into Mountain View as soon as they showed signs of success. This did not work well for remote employees who were left marginalised and unrewarded for their efforts.

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to work on projects and ideas of your own choosing.
    World changing projects - help improve products for millions of people.
    Great compensation packages

    Cons

    Google might not be the right place for you if you don't know how to navigate ambiguity and get things done with minimal oversight. Need to be able to influence across functions.
