    Pros

    The people at Google are amazing and great to work with. Pay, perks, and benefits are excellent. There is some new challenge to solve each day and the impact that you can have is monumental.

    Cons

    --Unless you're above a certain level, it can be tough to move internally despite what any recruiter might say to you.
    --Google changes every day which is great from a product perspective but can be frustrating as an employee who wants to have a consistent manager.

    Advice to Management

    Really focus on finding ways to create more movement within the company.

    Pros

    Free (delicious meals). Great environment.

    Cons

    No benefits. After two years of working myself to the bone without claiming overtime, I felt disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize who deserves to be full time - especially after the long hours and full dedication. Not everyone deserves to be discarded so quickly. Some of us worked hard to be noticed and never had a chance.
