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

Pros

People are very smart and nice, environment is like a college - promoting learning through work, and the salary is very competitive.

Cons

Sometimes I get too wrapped up in my work and neglect other duties, such as going home, but the college-like atmosphere is really great for allowing you to focus on your project and get work done!

    I worked at Google as a contractor

    Pros

    You receive mentoring from researchers who are at the top of their field. Your perspective on research will radically develop. The perks make life easy so you can focus on working. The people are the kindest.

    Cons

    Things move very fast and can be ambiguous. It's a tough job but the rewards from successful performance greatly outweigh anything.

    I worked at Google full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free food, amazing people, amazing vision - almost everything about this company is a pro. This is an incredible place to work.

    Cons

    Making the transition from a start up to Google was incredibly challenging. Since our product was being moved to the "stack," we had no updates and lost our competitive edge. This made it difficult for our sales teams to succeed, thus eliminating a number of roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work, but as you grow through acquisitions, consider how these teams can best fit into the organization
