    Pros

    Awesome place to work if you are a software engineer, are under 30 and thrive in an intense metric-based environment. Lots of smart people, lots of incredible perks.

    Cons

    Engineering is king so if you are working in some of the other departments, like HR/staffing, you may not feel as "special". The conversion process to go from contractor to FTE is flawed and they string you out to the end of your contract. Ideal candidates are 2-3 years out of a top-tier university; staffing experience not required. Experienced recruiters and sourcers are better off going elsewhere as Google doesn't appear to value seasoned professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Youth looks good on paper; you can hire 2 recent grads for the compensation required of an experience professional and groom them as you like but Google should place more value on maturity and experience.
