    Pros

    Huge flexibility, as an engineer you can work on any project you want. Flat org structure, to get things done you talk to other engineers rather than managers.

    Cons

    It's become a corporation. Sometimes it's hard to feel you can make a huge impact. There's so many employees and projects, you can be gone for weeks and nobody will notice.

    Advice to Management

    Because the org is so flat, managers have many direct reports. Still they should focus on individual's career development rather than the current project status and updates.

    Pros

    Great team environment allows everybody to raise a voice. There are tons of activities to get involved such as work-out, dance classes, or toastmasters meetings.

    Cons

    Some of the senior employees seem to gotten comfortable in their positions, which I was not expecting in such a competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep motivating everybody. Google is full of motivated, and enthusiastic people. I would love to come back at some point.

    Pros

    Surrounded by some of the smartest people in the world, doing meaningful projects and always learning.

    Cons

    Experience will depend on the office you are in, and office dynamics can change tremendously as it grows.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better feel for the internal challenges smaller offices have, it is very easy for things to change the farther you are from HQ.
