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

Pros

At Google there is free food and smart people. The company was large enough that the benefit plans were good.

Cons

I thought the culture was a little alpha-male dominant and could edge out the quieter types. Depending on your manager there could be very little interest in your promotions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on problems where advantages in computer science will produce a market advantages (search & ads) not UX (social networks, games)
