Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Google full-time for more than a 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.

    - clearly defined roles
    - amazing perks

    Cons

    - pressure to meet data-driven goals sometimes leads to the work feeling a bit redundant.
