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

    Google is a wonderful place to work. New York office is fantastic and I love my team. I encourage everyone to apply.

    Cons

    The cons of working at Google are that if you are not an engineer, there is not as much flexibility and creativity allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to senior management at Google is to expand their teams beyond looking at what school someone attended or what their GPA is.
