Pros

- Peers are sheer geniuses in their realm, very low amount of low performers
- Fun
- Great Start for college grads - pace is fast, learning is fast
- AWESOME annual bonus

Cons

- Middle management is very detached from work
- Everything is looked from a efficiency standpoint, and sometimes that cannot be done
- Indication (in ops groups) that decision is coming from the top down rather than bottom up as was tradition

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Re-review all of middle management in Corp Eng. and clean house! We're Google's IT and first line dog-fooders, at the very least empower us to do the right thing

    Pros

    Easy work, lots of random cool projects to work on. Get to multitask on tons of projects at the same time. Good location.

    Cons

    Too few opportunities. Engineers can be extremely weird here. I would recommend against this job for another tech company. Direction is vague and erratic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to do your jobs better Management is poor and almost powerless. No direction at the company. Most gains seem to be from 'luck'

    Doesn't Recommend
