I have been working at Google as an intern for less than a year

Pros

I'm constantly surrounded by very smart, very competent people. We're treated very well and most of the things you hear about our amenities are true. The project I'm working on is exciting and keeps me motivated to work.

Cons

Although it hasn't been my experience, I think many people can be placed in projects they're not too passionate about, and that may even be below their level of expertise. That can probably be a bit disheartening.

    I have been working at Google full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Incredible perks, enormously intelligent and motivated people, lots of freedom to do as you want, competent to great managers

    Cons

    Very high expectations and a commute from the city to the suburbs means work/life balance takes a hit. Self-direction is also highly prized, which is reflected in both the flatter structure of the company and the management style of several direct supervisors I've had--perhaps a pro and a con?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please expand the SF office.
