    Google was a great place to work, but at the end of the day it was just a job.

    Pros

    Great pay, amazing benefits, great perks, and stock options.

    Cons

    No work life balance even though they talk about it a lot. 85% of my team were single, and they worked 70+ hours a week. If you wanted to put out the same amount of work, and meet the expectations of your manager you had to do the same.

    Pros

    Strong, not best, benefits/comp, easy work/life balance

    Cons

    Largely mediocre middle management, mediocre projects for 99% of the company, and hierarchical

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-orgs are fine if they have impact or remove layers
