    Pros

    pace of the business & intelligence of the strategy
    intelligence of the management
    risk taking of the leadership
    amazing condition of work

    Cons

    large company , we may loose the sense of understanding what we want to achieve
    may not feel the ability to create impact.
    I used to call it the golden jail as many employees stayed there because it's comfy.

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    By and large the quality of colleagues is incredible and is the single largest reason I have remained with the company. The culture respects work / life balance if you are in the right team and the room to grow or move within the company is extensive.

    Cons

    Becoming bigger and more unwieldy and the layer of consultant management just below or at executive level and reducing the scope for innovation

    Everyone are so brilliantly internally connected

    I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Perks, salary and in general pension plan
    Management culture

    Cons

    Highly specialised for each job role, there isn't much you can do outside your job description
    Low mobility, caused by said high specialisation, if you want to slightly change the type of area you work on, it's going to take you maybe years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't stick too much to the CV, think of the person first!

    Pros

    Great opportunities to jump in working life after graduating. The best benefits in the business, most amazing collegues and option to work abroad. Lots of options to expand your knowledge by doing extra courses (on- or offline).

    Lots of people with great potential, all looking for promotion. You might not get the opportinities to grow as soon as you think you deserve them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open about the options of in company growth right from the start

    Pros

    Great team. Lots of opportunities to get involved on projects outside the core role. Amazing perks. Learnt a lot. Fantastic hiring managers and teams, everyone that you work with is so dynamic, intelligent and passionate about what try do. Yummy food.

    Cons

    Very rigid recruitment process which makes it difficult to manage candidates. Expectations are super high so expect long hours and to be overloaded. Most recruiters do not get extended after the 11 month contract.
