    Pros

    - amazing quality food and lots of it - supportive of growing their employees - generous benefits and amenities

    Cons

    - the warm and friendly corporate culture has dwindled to resemble the more typical corporate culture with underhanded politics and favoritism being the keys to success - work / life balance could be better. a lot of times there is peer pressure to be constantly working or give off the perception that one is always on the clock. the company does provide a laptop, cell phone and pay for your home internet (which is obviously great) but it is also to enable this sort of mentality

    Advice to Management

    - close the distance between managers and reportees. often managers are assigned a larger number of reportees than they can effectively manage which makes for the aforementioned underhanded politics and subsequent favoritisms taking play

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Google is at the cutting edge of everything from technology to HR practices to work-life balance - Google encourages innovation more than other places I have worked at. - Google takes Care of it's employees

    Cons

    - When you work at the topmost company that is already successful, you miss the chance to work in a start-up environment

    Advice to Management

    - Be brave and separate the divisions that are not really interlinked.
