Google work

I have been working at Google

Pros

Great culture, people, food and environment. Very rigorous approach to product planning and maybe most importantly a transparent culture where people are encouraged to give feedback and dig in where they're interested.

Cons

It's gotten big. People who have dreams of working at startups will find out that Google is now (and has been for a while) a very large company with lots of divisions and layers.

    Pros

    • Compensation
    • Benefits
    • Offices are fun
    • Infinite opportunities to learn

    Cons

    • Very competitive and difficult to make career progression
    • Everyone is overqualified for their jobs. Because everyone wants to work at Google, they can get by hiring candidates with 5+ experience for positions other companies consider entry level.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for employees to move around and progress their careers.

    Pros

    Intelligent, inspiring, hard-working and action-oriented coworkers. Wonderful perks such as shuttles, food, gyms, etc. Work/life balance is incredible as well, if you are able to detach yourself.

    Cons

    narrow roles since the org is so large, challenging/nearly impossible to get promoted given that the employee-base is full of over-achievers and managers change every few months.
