    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Google not only has amazing benefits including great health care/dental/vision, 401K contribution-matching, free food, gym, etc., but it provides amazing resources for skill-building. The company has an entire organization dedicated to providing in-house classes from everything to excel to presentation skills. The company also promotes its workers to bring their own ideas to the table and execute them no matter their level in the department.

    Cons

    Because there are so many bright people working at Google, it's difficult to stand out and get recognized for a job well done. There is a quota on promotions that can be given out each period, and there is lack of visibility on the criteria involved. There are a lot of lateral movement opportunities but not upward movement within a department.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Integrated Product, Engineering and UX teams
    - Focus is on the user and improving product
    - Incredibly sophisticated software development practices and agility
    - Transparency of the organization
    - Really smart leadership team
    - Very comprehensive benefits & perks
    - Strong education program

    Cons

    - Limited upside prospects unless you're (a) personally critical to the business and (b) threatening to leave for another company
    - HR process for internal mobility isn't working well
    - Opaque resource allocation process

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to director recruitment. Of all the management levels, it is the one where I've observed the most variation in quality.
