I have been working at Google

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.

    I have been working at Google

    Pros

    Smart co-workers
    Great food
    Interesting, high-impact projects
    Many learning opportunities
    High pay
    Good benefits
    30 inch monitor
    Seemingly unlimited computing resources

    Cons

    A sense of entitlement from some employees
    With so many reports per manager, it is easy to get over looked if you don't speak up
    Group offices. Sometimes I really want a door and a quiet place to work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management is doing great. The feeling of trust I get from management at Google helps me to feel committed to my work. Of course, mileage may vary depending on individual managers, but I've been very lucky here. And Eric is the best CEO I've encountered.
