Pros

Unlimited resources. Leading products. Smart energetic co-workers. Great perks.

Cons

Competitive to a fault. The review process is entirely political. There's a echo chamber. Your individual contribution is probably irrelevant to the company as a whole.

Advice to Management

Change the review process to acknowledge the importance of more than just code releases.

    I have been working at Google

    Pros

    As other people mentioned before, the perks are amazing (food, shuttle, gym, massages, etc.) but the best at Google is the people. There is no "blame game" around. Everyone is working hard to help the company and the products to succeed.

    Cons

    The number of products and projects can be overwhelm. It's not easy to maintain a reasonable work-life balance.
