I worked at Google as an intern

Pros

Incredibly smart people, given lots of responsibility for only being an intern, awesome work environment and the office was fun to be in.

Cons

Had to move across the country, which really wasn't that big of a deal because Google paid for it, but wasn't an ideal move at the time either.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep letting smart people do what they are doing. Clearly the company is doing something right.

    Love the founders, excessive growth and middle management destroyed the culture.

    I worked at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Compensation, cash to burn, pockets of innovation remain in the company. The founders are strong and are genuine.

    Cons

    Poor middle management, inexperience and arrogance made life very difficult. Too much time playing and not enough time delivering. Academic prejudice runs deep, politics and back-stabbing is the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the Googlegeist and Management feedback carefully, eliminate the Politicians!
