Pros

We have great perks, people are young, dynamic, creative and willing to take risks. There's an open communication between teams and managers, and overall it's a super fun place to work at. I won't even get started with the benefits and perks that Google offers as those are well documented already.

Cons

Progressing in the career may be a lengthy process. Sometimes you're better off leaving to another company to get work experience and try to return later to Google to get hired into a higher position.

Advice to Management

Leadership at Google is open, transparent and are always willing to receive feedback. Although the interaction between Googlers and Leadership is not as much as I'd like it to be, you can always know what's going on in your and other offices.

    Pros

    Google has an amazing work environment. Free food, massages, gym etc. All amazing. I've also gained very valuable experience working with large clients. The salary and whole benefits package is way better than anywhere else that I've worked.

    Cons

    I think there are so many layers of middle management that it's impossible to feel connected to the top. Especially if you aren't in the US, which is where most the exciting stuff happens. There is constant restructuring and it's not clear how the goals of management trickle down. They claim to be a flat company but I'm not convinced.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome products and great work environment! Would love to see more leadership from middle management and how goals roll up to the top or how they roll down the bottom.
