Pros

great products,
great colleagueas,
great culture,
great customers.
You really feel part of a family who is changing the world.
As account manager I had very good daily job, it was challenging and interesting for sure.

Cons

only sales career unless you have engineering degree
too much burocracy
very poor middle management
too much internal politics

Advice to Management

call customers, study online advertising, become expert in google's business, be business people, be more entrepreneurial. Sales teams management is absolutely crap, it s unbelievable how stupid they behave (they are not). They're never brave, never inspirational, just a bunch of useless burocrats who build a couple of reports per week about sales random fluctuations. Never seen such a bunch of clever people (they are) wasting their days doing useless and boring tasks or playing internal politics. I could never be a sales manager or even a team lead there, never.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people; great benefits; engineering dominated culture; as an engineer, you can literally do whatever you want, but you have to want something to begin with (see cons).

    Cons

    Company is too successful; people get complacent; increasingly engineers that need to be told what to do.


  2. it was awesome, exposed to real world development
