Advice to ManagementAdvice

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!

    I have been working at Google

    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
