    I have been working at Google full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people at Google are phenomenal - the smartest and most capable people I have worked with. And they're friendly and easy to work with too - very few jerks - everybody there is generally trying to do the right thing. Also, once you're in, it's relatively easy to move around - I have had three different jobs within Google

    Cons

    It's a big company - sometimes it is unclear how the different initiatives fit together. Also, because it is an organization filled with smart, competitive people who like to be the best, there is a culture of overwork that is hard to fight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just say what we're doing - explain why we're doing it and how it all fits together into a coherent strategy.
