Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

Insanely smart people everywhere (not just eng/prod). Looking for game changing ways to approach every problem. The food and shuttles are great benefits. You can end up working a lot but it's generally because you want to, not because you have to.

Cons

Has lost the start-up culture. It's big, it's political and it's expected. It's a gigantic company and compared to overall revenues and growth the company has managed to stay as "un political" as possible.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!

    Pros

    Great perks, great pay, neat to see what is coming down the road and an open culture.

    If you don't live close to an office, you can be superman and not stay on.

    Consider the offsite people if they are performing well.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual but fast-paced work environment, mobility, concern for work-life balance.

    Cons

    Many technologies are Google-specific, would not necessarily translate well to another employer.
