Pros

The rumors about the glamorous work environment at Google are true. You're in a comfortable workplace surrounded by the best people and practically smothered with perks.

Cons

The fabulous perks are there to keep the highly skilled employees complacent while they perform the menial, repetitive, labor that is required to keep the machine running. On any given eventing, many a Googler can be heard lamenting his/her under-stimulating project at any given Palo Alto watering hole.

    Pros

    Can't beat Google's culture and perks.
    Caring and smart people everywhere.
    Some work is challenging (depends on your role).

    Cons

    Company is getting big, and not everyone is moving as fast as we were before.
    There are clearly hierarchy, and most of time it doesn't equate bureaucracy but sometimes it does .

    Advice to Management

    Be nimble and move faster.

    Pros

    Google takes care of its people. On the sales side, I enjoy a fantastic work/life balance and really love the work that I'm doing in programmatic ad sales. Vacation time is fair, pay is fair, and the perks are insane.

    Cons

    If you get stuck with a bad manager, it can really ruin your experience a bit. Need to know how to navigate the corporate structure in order to be successful.
