I have been working at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Lots of perks and great work life balance! Google really cares about their employees and their products and it shows. It's great to be a part of such amazing innovation, and having the opportunity to work with such great minds.

Cons

Sometimes you feel like a very small fish in a big sea. Promotion process isn't the best. I've seen a number of people receive promotions who definitely didn't deserve it, while others who do, get passed over.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!
