I have been working at Google

Pros

Google is a great place to start your career. They're one of the few companies that was willing to train new college grads and let them join a fun, youthful team of smart people. Plus, the food and benefits can't be beat.

Cons

It really depends on what department you're in. Often times, you can feel like just a number, even though Google really prides themselves on having a start up culture. Google is a large corporation, and that is starting to show more and more due to the economy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be careful not to cut too many corners - the quality of work will decrease, and Google will lose it's credibility.

    Pros

    Google is a company of constant change, and opportunities abound for the hungry. Management are eager to spot talent and bring them forward.

    Cons

    However, unless you are careful, you might find yourself digging a hole with no way out. It is no longer as easy to climb as it used to be within the organisation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going strong, and look for new avenues of revenue. With a smart and world-class work force, you can stay as flexible as you like
