Former Employee - Account Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)
Former Employee - Account Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I worked at Google full-time (more than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Freedom to work and motivate one self. There is no micro-managing and you're given the freedom to work the way you want as long as it drives results. They also understand the importance of life balance and have helped me instill balance in my life.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything. There may be times where you feel the work isn't right for you, but it's big enough that you're able to move to a project and location that suits you.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great people, great culture.
    Superb Food.

    Cons

    A lot of great people around you. The company has grown quite big by now. So you have to work really hard for promotions.
    If it can be considered a con, the overwhelming variety of great food around you makes it very tough to control westline :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue with the disruptive innovations.
