I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I would say that the quality of my co-workers is very high. My managers have all at least seemed to be concerned with my personal well-being. There is always something new to learn here.

Cons

Quarter performance evaluations can be a little wearing. Good communication with the technical leadership on your project is a must for success a Google.

Advice to Management

Stop pivoting on social.

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing, smart, fun, and quirky colleagues
    Great brand name on your resume
    Open and transparent management
    The food, of course

    Cons

    Google is becoming more hierarchical. You can move up through the ranks, but if you start at entry-level, it will take you 15+ years to get to senior management. Use it as a stepping stone to another job outside the company or move laterally and gain experience in different roles

    I have been working at Google as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is great to get along with. A lot of young, successfull professionals. My boss is great to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best as an intern. I am looking forward to the big raise when I start full time in the spring.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!
