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

Pros

You work with some of the best and brightest in the world. Whichever field you're in there'll be at least one and probably several of the field's most renown luminaries working at Google. The perks are amazing, it's a great environment to get things done.

Cons

Google is a giant company with more structure and inertia than I expected. There is a lot of duplication of effort and it is really difficult to have a company wide impact.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure that the hiring bar does not drop as Google continues to grow.

    I worked at Google as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    This is a company that really cares about their employees. Starting from the interview processes everything was incredible. As an intern I had a lot of freedom with my projects. I get to do something on my own that turned out to have a big impact of the company. The people are amazing and very knowledgable. Whenever I had questions they were willing to spend time with me and suggest things that can be improved.

    Cons

    For an intern the learning curve is very step. For a regular employee it takes about 6 months before they are productive. Maybe improved training for interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
