    Current Employee - Program Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Google full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Autonomy, trust and flexibility to do you job. The basic philosophy is to hire smart people and let them get stuff done independently. The atmosphere and structure is actually brilliant and with nice cash compensation it's a great place to be.

    Cons

    Getting larger and more political. If you're not working on a project that is clearly important it can be difficult to get noticed by senior management.

    Current Employee - Financial Analyst in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Google full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The perks are unparalleled. 3 meals a day and unlimited snacks, gym and comprehensive fitness program, laundry machines, bowling alley, intramural and other special interest clubs, full class schedules and speakers

    Cons

    Limited career progression for non-engineers. It's a great place to be if you're a middle aged and settled down with a family. It's become very political and hard to get things done with so many departments and matrices.
