I build things, and it's fun!

Software Engineer (Current Employee)

Pros+ Larry wants us to keep the soul of a startup, even though we no longer are one. In some teams, like the ones I've been on, this has been possible - going from an idea to millions of users on a new product in < 2 years. Twice.
+ Product areas work on complex problems with awesome technical infrastructure set up already!
+ Smart peers, awesome project, if you get lucky or a particular team wants you.

Cons+ Not-as-smart peers if you are not lucky, and possibly less-exciting projects, too. In this case you need to pay your dues on that project for 12-18 months, before being able to transfer.

Advice to Senior ManagementEnough with Google+ corrupting every single product in the name of Google+ success - I don't want a +Page for my YouTube account!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
