I have been working at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Google has a lot of smart and nice people to work with. People work collaboratively. The company has many great benefits. It just feels like the company has hired the best people to work on all the benefits (401k, fitness, food, etc etc) as well.

Cons

Things can move very fast at Google, which means it can be somewhat stressed. It depends on the projects you work on, though.

    Pros

    Incredibly smart, dedicated people working on amazing problems. Out of this world perks (if that excites you). Free food, snacks, dog-friendly, massages, etc you name it. And the opportunity to work with the most powerful data tools in the world!

    Cons

    A bit chaotic with some pockets of unhealthiness. In a tradeoff for simplicity the organization is becoming more top down. You have less freedom to pick projects and transfers are becoming more difficult, and they were hard to beging with. You are measured by a perf cycle every quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the path to simplification. And not just for external products, but for internal teams.
