Great place to work provided you have a good role and department

Senior Product Specialist (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsSmart, driven colleagues, near limitless resources, ideal work environment, excellent work/life balance, international work opportunities, opportunities for growth (more intellectual than career)

ConsThe vast majority of the people who made Google what it is today have move on and in many cases have been replaced by cookie-cutter MBA types, ex Microsoft employees and management consultants. This combined with Google's massive growth (18k employees in Mountain View alone) has made it less of the agile innovator it once was but rather a techno-advertising behemoth.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
