Pros

Google has a tremendous brand equity, incredibly brilliant colleagues, and it has a culture that truly fosters innovation. The work environment is generally fun and challenging environment.

Cons

The hours are very long and hard, and work/life balance still needs to be improved. Management says they are doing their best to make this better, though it has not improved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to avoid changing things at the last minute for certain functional groups within the organization. Sometimes they make last minute changes to decisions, which causes a pain for the employees down the ladder.

    Pros

    The perks at Google are really cool. The free food and Google wear are all good. But the recognition of working at a cool company is a reward itself too

    Cons

    It is a very disorganized environment. The company still feels chaotic and like a start up. Also, it seems the company takes advantage of people by lowering the salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise the leadership to be more structured. Sometimes the environment is too loose and too casual. Perhaps this is to preserve the Google reputation of being a "cool" company to work for.
