    Pros

    Fast paced work, self motivating, encourages to exceed expectations met by infographic, dynamic test.

    Cons

    Watch out for Apple. They're hot and closing in on our assessment. Jealousy issues between Apps and Droids. Can't forget about those annoying drones.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for those annoying drones. Apple is hot on our tail. Don't think they're giving up anytime soon.

    Pros

    Pretty much everything: salary, benefits, people, managers. It was all awesome. I would love to work at Google again in a location with better commutes or lower cost of living.

    Cons

    The cost of living in the Bay Area + the huge commute time to Mountain View. Even those beautiful shuttles are miserable when you spend 15 hours per week on them. My part time job was commuting.

    Pros

    Awesome place to work. Good people and great perks. They definitely take care of their people and make sure that you're are happy and satisfied with the work you're doing.

    Cons

    Honestly, I haven't had any issues working here. At times it can be frustrating to work in a bigger company as there are layers of bureaucracy to tackle—but, even that is better at Google than it is at other larger companies.
