    Pros

    Food, brand name, work culture, plush offices (all the superficial things)

    Cons

    No career track, slow career advancement, wrong person for the wrong job

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I now understand why the Google stock price is dropping. You hire incredibly over qualified people for the job and pay 2x wages for it. You would rather hire the right person for the right job and pay the right wages for it. Having a lot of cash does not mean throwing it away. Employees will only be happy to an extent on the fancy perks thrown but largely will look for meaningful roles (most employees do not say it but they are unhappy with the role they are in since it does not justify their potential)

    Pros

    Compensation and work ethics there are awesome. You will be working in on of the few companies that are are truly doing cutting-edge stuff in computer science, from a engineering and scientific point of view.

    Cons

    If you work in a remote location and end up in a project that is not a fit for you, there is not many oportunities to move to another project.
