    Pros

    - Free food, laundry service, home internet expense reimbursement, education reimbursement, 410K matching, etc.
    - Still a very engineering centric culture.
    - Great pay, lots of opportunities to transfer to new roles internally.
    - Larry Page is a great CEO.

    Cons

    - Increasingly bureaucratic within my organization, process creep.
    - Low performers aren't dealt with very well.
    - It's getting more difficult to build internal applications because of all of the approvals required to access data in various systems.

    Advice to Management

    Please reduce the amount of processes and approvals required to develop internal web applications.
