I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

Everything included. Amazing culture and people.

Getting slower as it's a big company - but probably still the best of its size.

    Pros

    Never been happier at a company. Lots of challenges everyday, and you work with the brightest people in the world. Unlike a lot of big companies, people are willing to help one another. Big Google also tries to foster meritocracy, and every year they have a company wide survey that helps lower, middle, and upper management know what to improve directly from tens of thousands of Googler feedback.

    Cons

    Some Googlers are self-entitled and not just to non-Googlers but to other Googlers as well. I blame it on poor hiring decisions. There's tremendous growth at Google and sometimes despite their best intentions, poor hiring decisions are made. In some parts of the business, it's very political. Can be challenging if you don't know how to play the game. Some managers are too busy to show their reports tough love or real 1:1 mentoring.

    Advice to Management

    On customer service: Care about customer support to a degree that it doesn't make financial sense. Google has some of the best products on the market, and customers expect the same level of 1:1 support. This applies to any customer or partner that is paying for services or products. On people management: Find out which jobs are being performed that are low impact (usually non-sales metric driven roles) Give bad managers attention as soon as the GoogleGeist results come out. Their reportees may be really suffering.
