Still a great place to work, despite the growth

Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Google

ProsYou're working with top people in the world, the culture is very very relaxed, flex time, great benefits, free food.

ConsThe environment has changed since the early days. This may just be Operations jobs and does not necessarily apply to all Engineering though. Even still it's a great job.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore and more talented people are leaving for new startups or other areas of the company. I don't have a specific solution but the reason is that the place has become too bureaucratic and it is much more difficult to work on fun new projects in Operations.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
