    Pros

    Great perks and benefits.
    Peers can start to become like family when a bond is formed.
    International travel opportunity.
    Hands on experience with new products and technology.

    Cons

    Too many overqualified employees are considered during performance reviews, making promotion difficult.
    Entry level pay is subpar compared to other huge technology companies.
    Management may be hard to budge when new ideas are presented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruiting and retaining diverse talent is still lacking and should be a higher priority.
    Ask more behavioral questions during interviews and try not to dwell on trivial knowledge that will rarely be used in the role that is being applied for.

    Pros

    Amazing career opportunities and a great place to jumpstart your career. There is a good amount of lateral mobility within the company which is great if you want to make a job change without switching companies.

    Cons

    As Google is getting bigger it is getting more difficult to have your opinion heard and to move quickly within the organization. Promotions can be hard to come by and take much longer here than at other companies.
