    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most Googlers live in a bubble and have no real grasp on what is going on outside their group. Everything is so last minute here it is amazing to see how little planning is actually done here.

    I worked at Google full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great perks, great environment, great culture. Everybody working here is smart, friendly, and approachable. Plus, there are always awesome events; celebrities or performers coming, writers speaking about their books, etc.

    Cons

    The work can be very monotonous, as a lower level employee, input isn't really valued. As it's a very large company, the scope of what you're expected to do is quite narrow. They like you to specialize in one thing and ultimately, your value will be determined on how well you execute THAT particular function.
