    Pros

    Great benefits in office and beyond, food and healthy snacks, great collaborative spaces, lively culture , smart peers to work with

    Cons

    Compensation is not the best while Google aspires to hire the best talent in the market. The hr team tries to reason but sitting outside country does not help

    Advice to Management

    Better comp and getting hr folks to be in country to understand the ground reality of the market, to ensure that the right talent is acquired and retained

    Pros

    Tons of perks, can be intellectually challenging

    -It can take forever to get to work because there are so many people working in a place with basically just two access roads
    -You will feel like just a number at times
    -Promotion is pretty much BS

    Pros

    Amazing people
    Big challenges and opportunies
    No shortage of money or people if you have a good idea

    Cons

    Slower growth makes new opportunities harder to find
    Lots of very senior, smart people you need to convince to let you try new stuff

    Advice to Management

    There are many burnouts. We should have holiday homes for them.


  6. Pay doesn't pay for living near HQ, and opportunities biased to HQ

    Pros

    Smartest people you'll ever work with

    Cons

    Unwilling to admit it's own size and plan for it, with middle managers stretched thinner than others places in industry.

    Strongly centered on HQ, and pay doesn't even buy a house near HQ.
