    Pros

    Google has great culture. People generally work there pretty happy. Google has great engineers and peers. People are friendly and helpful. Google has great leaders. Leader try to help people grow.

    Cons

    Google is a big company, and sometimes things are moving slow. Google is so much engineering focused, and sometimes it is not so customer focused.

    Advice to Management

    Career development is sometimes a problem for engineers. Make sure that engineers are valued properly, and also the promotion committee is sometimes biased, especially when they are not responsible for anything.

    Pros

    Surrounded by some of the most brilliant, creative people in the industry. Everyone is typically excited to work on their respective projects and unified behind the vision of the company.

    Cons

    Things are starting to move slower; this is a natural construct of operating at as large of a scale as Google does, but the company has lost its start-up feel.

    Advice to Management

    Management is continually trying to improve on the cons described above, so it's nothing new. Continuing to remove red tape is huge.
