I have been working at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

People, cultural, food. Depends on which manager and department you are in, but I get control of projects, am not micromanaged and feel I make a real impact.

Cons

Depending on role, can be very narrowly focused at times.

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The collective intelligence level is off the charts. There is an emphasis on innovation. "We can do it better." There is, generally, an atmosphere of mutual respect. The management walks their talk.

    Cons

    There can be an atmosphere of one-upsmanship sometimes, when egos come into play. There are a lot of strong egos at Google.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with those employee surveys. People feel heard, which is great.

    Former Intern - Software Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Google as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone's very bright and hardworking, but everyone knows this already. More important, the Google culture is one of openness. Many docs are publicly visible, so you can learn about other projects in the company, and people enjoy talking about what they're working on.

    Cons

    This varies significantly by location, but some workspaces are very tightly crammed, with people sitting side-by-side in long tables. This is a distracting and unpleasant work environment. It's like being in an industrial chicken coop. Engineers need quiet!
