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

    Pros

    Amazing technology. Great environment to learn in. High expectations. You need to be able to upramp quickly and come up to speed on emerging bleeding edge technologies in short order.

    Cons

    The hours can be very long. Google has a strong Not Invented Here mentality. So you will work with a lot of Google-only code. Everything from the development environment, build system, code review tool, automated test tool are in house only tools. They are all custom developed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on Mobile. Be careful not to be too distracted by the Google X projects.

    Current Employee - Business Operations Associate in Mountain View, CA

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

    Pros

    Within my team, we have a particularly flat hierarchy, though it can be quite hierarchical when interfacing with executives above our team. We have opportunities for mutual feedback with coworkers, a strong focus on increasing team well-being/happiness, lots of team bonding events, and a high drive towards personal growth. The overall company has an atmosphere of conviviality that is energizing.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be a bit difficult because of the pressure from executives outside our team; however, leads work to be role models of work-life balance in order to encourage associates to manage their schedules as necessary to protect personal happiness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to Googlers when they raise issues: they are your pulse on the Google reputation. Keep the wonderful attention to culture!
