Pros

You work with the smartest engineers in the world. You solve very difficult problems. You eat delicious food.

Cons

You eat too much delicious food. On a more serious note, it may be a bit difficult to separate work from life because of how closely Google seems to integrate its people. You'll have to work very hard to have a life outside of your code.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The recruitment process sometimes seems a little messy.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer III in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Google full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues at the top of their game who are surprisingly unpretentious and approachable.
    Unfathomable benefits - food, gifts, freedom.
    A peek "behind the curtain"
    Openness, trust, and a really unique corporate culture

    Cons

    It's hard work! If you're smart enough to get hired and you learn the stack, you'll do fine, but overachieving coworkers make it difficult to stand out.

    Listening to coworkers complain about how their scallops weren't cooked properly :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the open culture
    Continue "not being evil"
    Perhaps ease the growth pressure on the SWE ladder? Not everyone aspires to be a tech lead.
