    Pros

    Google is an amazing company. Innovative, passionate, insisting and investing to stay young, and continuously trying to improve

    Cons

    Google sucks when it comes to bringing on board new talent with a strong and accomplished caliber and assisting its integration into the operations. Instead of making the younger and less experienced work-force absorb the experience and Know-How, Google embraced a weak and overly flat environment which allows the least experienced ones set the tone and fight off external Know-How and experience. That's not really a company that wants to change but rather a company that it suffers from massive turn-over in sales and business operations and instead of fighting it off with a confident infusion of experience operations leader, it created an overly flat and 'fuzzy' environment, where everyone is obsessed with trying to please others and be sweet on the expense of doing the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    All this 'we are all loving each other and having fun together' is good for a young company but it is just not enough for building up a stronger and more mature and experienced caliber that would be able to sustain the company's growth, once it turns gigantic.
    Overly flat and collaborate corporate environment to the level young and clueless account managers sitting and raising ideas in senior management team meetings is showing weakness to establish a clear and confident reporting and development environment.

    No one wants to turn into the new Microsoft but going overly 'flat' won't solve it
