    Current Employee - Software Engineer in New York, NY

    I have been working at Google full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Zero politics, awesome products, open and supportive culture. Getting to play with the internal infrastructure is amazing. Many things still happen at a grassroots level so you can really help shape the company and it's products. Employees are encouraged to openly question and debate if the company is doing the right thing. In my group management is almost non existent which I think is a good thing. Getting to work at an engineering center in downtown Manhattan. Perks are as good as everyone says.

    Cons

    There is a massive learning curve and it can takes months to become a contributing member of the team. Working in C++ is slow and painful. Engineers could sometimes explain things better.
