    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    Amazing benefits; more flexible schedule/working location; smart and talented people; perks like shuttlebus, free meals, etc.

    Cons

    You're never really off the clock - I get emails past midnight and can't get away with not checking email at night or on the weekends.

    It's also becoming more hierarchical and top down. There is far less of that start-up spirit than when the company was younger.

    Size - with so many employees, it's easy to feel like one of the many minions.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful that as you mature as a company, you don't let bureaucracy take over. As much as I love my coworkers and the work environment, I find myself growing more disenchanted with the Google leadership the longer I stay.

    Pros

    Everything happens very fast and efficiently in Google. Besides, food is great ! It seems that you have all you need to Google, just ask it!

    Cons

    It seems like each group work very independently and so fast so it will be difficult for you to make friends with other people at the first place.
