Current Employee - Product Manager in London, England (UK)

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

Pros

You get to meet an amazing network of great people; people are loyal and hard working; make lots of great new friends; work with super smart people

Cons

Turning into a larger, more mature organisation; some less important or smaller projects are often cancelled; harder to start up new innovative projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Product Managers should be allowed to be more hands on with the infrastructure.

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

    I worked at Google full-time (more than a 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.
