    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, the salary is great, you are essentially helping millions of people in better technology.

    Cons

    Many, many intelligent and unique people you are constantly surrounded by that can overwhelm you.

    Advice to Management

    Give me more take home boxes, please! Some team managers are a bit condescending, however.

    Pros

    I worked at google for about 4 years now. I love love love it. smart amazing people who get stuff done. Quality of engineers is on the decline lately though.

    Cons

    beaurcracy makes it much harder for products to get launched. Code reviews take a while. Lots of self entitlement among many employees

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have that much advice. raise the hiring bar for incoming software engineers. Consider firing people more. Its very hard to get fired, admit you made a wrong hiring decision and sometimes let people go.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Can't ask for a better pool of employees to act as mentors and friends.

    Cons

    Job (on services team) is not great. Everyone is overqualified and there's a lot of angry advertisers calling in simply to be angry.
