    The Bay Area cost of living is through the roof...Google has competitive salaries but it's not enough to live in the Bay Area.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Reputable company the best in the industry with years of innovation behind it. They take care of their people with very competitive salaries working environment is spectacular with many amenities others could only wish for.

    Cons

    You work this is not a 9-5 job with weekends off. I read the reviews of everyone on here and they cry about having to work on weekends cause Google hints about it but does not enforce it or you have to get in good with your direct supervisor, divorces, quality of life, people crying,cockiness in the work place promotes competitiveness which in turn brings results......toughen up people did you think you were going to be making a six figure salary and not work for it? Yes you work but it balances out perks and a company that is going to be around in the years to come. Like the saying goes if you can do better go else where. Everyone has gotten way to spoiled and soft. People need to look around and see what other jobs people are working and look at yours then be grateful there's a hell of a lot worse.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Sort through the winers and promote the achievers who work and put the company before everything else the way it should be cause with out the company they have no job!
