Pros

Amazing benefits, amazing people that make you grow, and amazing work. You really feel like what you're doing has an impact on the world.

Cons

It's easy to become a "number" at Google if you don't put yourself out there. You have to be assertive and willing to throw out new ideas. That said, depending on your job role, often that can be harder than it seems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I really loved my experience with management. Great mentorship experience and I received a lot of specific feedback about my work and progress.

    Pros

    Always on the leading edge of technology. High pressure workplace but high rewards. Access to all technologies. No limit on hardware.

    Cons

    Not best place to work when balancing home/work/religion. Extreme pressure to complete tasks on-time. Little time to exercise as work consumes all your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To stay in the forefront in search and other web technologies Google must continue to push employees. Employees know what they are getting into when they are hired.
