    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues at the top of their game who are surprisingly unpretentious and approachable.
    Unfathomable benefits - food, gifts, freedom.
    A peek "behind the curtain"
    Openness, trust, and a really unique corporate culture

    Cons

    It's hard work! If you're smart enough to get hired and you learn the stack, you'll do fine, but overachieving coworkers make it difficult to stand out.

    Listening to coworkers complain about how their scallops weren't cooked properly :)

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the open culture
    Continue "not being evil"
    Perhaps ease the growth pressure on the SWE ladder? Not everyone aspires to be a tech lead.
