ProsOverall an ok place to work. Good food, smart co workers. Fairly interesting work, though not always. Upper management is very transparent and open.

ConsThe Seattle office is definitely more top down and autocratic than most other Google offices. Far less freedom to change projects and work on things that interest you.

Advice to Senior Managementstop hiring so fast
