    Former Employee - Manager, Media Platforms Solutions in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, plain and simple. The stock still seems to have some legs. The company leads amazing projects on the edge via the Google X division

    Cons

    Way too many middle managers. Employees are mired in cycles of performance reviews, the dreaded calibration, being graded on the curve, etc. Competitive, political workplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on hiring from Consulting or MBAs; go back to your roots of valuing scrappy and digging qualifications.
