    Pros

    Great product, great culture. I love the google search, and android system, gmail etc.

    Too big now, not as good as before. The google plus is very disappointing, seems too many managment now. However it is common in every big company.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Integrated Product, Engineering and UX teams
    - Focus is on the user and improving product
    - Incredibly sophisticated software development practices and agility
    - Transparency of the organization
    - Really smart leadership team
    - Very comprehensive benefits & perks
    - Strong education program

    Cons

    - Limited upside prospects unless you're (a) personally critical to the business and (b) threatening to leave for another company
    - HR process for internal mobility isn't working well
    - Opaque resource allocation process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to director recruitment. Of all the management levels, it is the one where I've observed the most variation in quality.
