    Amazing, smart, driven and fun people to work with, usually pretty stimulating work, working autonomously, fantastic benefits.

    Very limited career opportunity in satellite offices, which however is not acknowledged by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire so many managers from external, they ruin our culture.

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

    Pros

    Great insight into the high-quality software development process.
    First class experience in the design of the reliable and robust cloud services.
    Smart and creative coworkers.

    Cons

    Poor career growth opportunities: 1) too few steps in the career ladder; 2) convoluted promotion process.
    As the company is instantly growing, problems in the inter team communication become more visible.
    Technologies used inside Google in the wide majority of cases are not available externally.
