Approves of CEO

I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits. Smart coworkers. Inspiring company. I left Google for two years to get an MBA and recently rejoined the company. I've had exposure to other companies and they just don't compare.

Cons

Promotions are few and far between and career progression is tough to manage, but when successful, it pays off. You must be a self-starter to succeed.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are some of the best around. Most departments respect work/life balance. Internal mobility is good. Overall skill level of peers is very high.

    Cons

    Nothing that happens or has ever happened in software engineering is interesting, relevant, or good unless it happened at Google. Prior experience in barbarian companies is considered irrelevant or harmful. Groupthink and NIH syndrome lead to some daft decisions that are considered holy and irrevocable within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to be Facebook.
