I have been working at Google full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Google epitomizes why I love technology and the tech industry. Useful products, smart people, data-driven decisions & culture, a mission I can feel good about when I go to sleep every night. This is as good as it gets.

Cons

Google's difficult to get into, but also difficult to get fired from. It's like Stanford in that regard. This has pro's (easy to feel safe) and cons (easy to coast for years).

Advice to Management

It's already the best company I've ever worked for. Make it better by keeping a very high bar on new products (people expect nothing less from us!) and also for employees.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great Company, smart co-workers, great benefits, good pay.

    Cons

    Downside, its a large corporation and there are tedious processes that do exist. However for a company so large it is not that bad.


  2. "Great big corporate experience"
