Advice to Management

They are doing great, so far this is the best company I have worked with. I feel lucky about it. I think Google is one of the most professional, honest and clear company who treats their employee fair. I know the Management knows their vision and will maintain their focus. Good luck!

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

    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
