I have been working at Google

Pros

-Free food

-Very young management and college-like atmosphere

-Google's market dominance and absence of significant competitors

-Potential for high salaries at the higher management levels

-Very smart people

Cons

-Low compensation for the lower positions

-Limited promotion opportunities

-Most people here are over qualified for the type of work they do, resulting in lack of challenge.

-Becoming increasingly bureaucratic as it grows, which means more budget approvals and red tape.

-Hard to diffirentiate yourself amongst all the smart people, making it harder to advance.

-The lower pay in Google is supposed to be balanced out by all the 'perks' provided to you in the office, however unless you think that someone else knows better your consumption habits, you would probably want to have the cash instead!

    Pros

    Great transparency within the company where you can learn a lot.
    Abundance of great, intelligent people in the company.
    Lots of exciting opportunities within Google.
    Great benefits and perks.
    Employees are well respected by company.

    Cons

    Too Mountain View centric. Most key persons are in HQ and most important decisions are made there.
    It's a pain for offices to collaborate across timezones. For example, it's impossible for JAPAC, EMEA, and the US to meet together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think of ways to make "remote" offices work better.
