    Pros

    Google offers a very goal-oriented and challenging work environment. The Google name on the resume opens up many doors in the software industry.

    I grew as a programmer at Google. The scale of the development work is virtually unmatched in the industry and that needs out-of-the box thinking.

    The best part of the job was working with so many smart people. I learned more from my colleagues than I did in college.

    I also loved free food:) The informal work culture at Google is something I truly enjoyed.

    Cons

    I did feel burn out at times. I also took work home many times.

    Advice to Management

    Improve work life balance
