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 Management

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

    Pros

    Best and brightest engineers I've ever worked with, very forgiving atmosphere, easy to change teams if something interesting comes along, lots of opportunity to visit offices in other cities and countries.

    Cons

    Self-induced pressure to "keep up" with the best of the engineers, a few "difficult" personalities.

    Advice to Management

    The increasing number of "siloed" projects is not Googley.
