I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an year)

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.

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

    Pros

    Great crowd, knowledge base, infrastructure, amazing benefits, minimal bureaucracy, transparency, company genuinely cares about their employee's happiness, and the result is a very happy and fun place to work at.

    Cons

    Steep learning curve, be prepared to have to constantly adapt and refactor code. Getting tasks done is a bit harder than usual here as there are a lot more things to take into consideration, such as scale, security, testing, etc. (but granted they also yield a lot better results than in other places). It gets better with time though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve internal tools & libraries and make them as easy and fun to use as the public APIs we provide!
