Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Google full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great perks, great people, and really challenging problems to work on. There's a work hard, play hard mentality that makes for a very satisfying career.

Cons

Some people don't have a life outside of work and have similar expectations of those around them. Management works to avoid bureaucracy, but as the company grows it's hard to avoid. The rapid pace of hiring has definitely changed the feel of the company.

    As with all companies, sometimes there are issues with managers and coworkers, but we are all adults and know how to deal with such conflict.
