Pros

Working with very smart people who are affecting the lives of millions of people -- one of the few places where you really can get in touch with the world as a whole.

Cons

Often too many projects to be able to truly be able to focus on one thing -- many time there is too much legacy making it hard to innovate and launch new ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get the company structure right -- figure out the role between regions and head office, and create the reporting structures accordingly.

    some coworkers are smart and i really learnt a lot from them

    Cons

    at some point the company just turned really strange and your bosses and coworkers fled....and people from search is so different from people from display...and who joined the company from other industry find so awkward to work between these two sides...

    Pros

    Great Senior management. They are frequently involved and are supportive of good ideas. The atmosphere is very casual, but intense. They expect excellence and treat their employees well.

    Cons

    They are growing and so space is at a premium. I know they are trying to get more room, but it is painful to try scheduling a meeting or getting some elbow room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Continue to trust your employees and grow the company and market share.
