I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great perks, great environment, great culture. Everybody working here is smart, friendly, and approachable. Plus, there are always awesome events; celebrities or performers coming, writers speaking about their books, etc.

Cons

The work can be very monotonous, as a lower level employee, input isn't really valued. As it's a very large company, the scope of what you're expected to do is quite narrow. They like you to specialize in one thing and ultimately, your value will be determined on how well you execute THAT particular function.

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

    Pros

    Workplace is very comfortable. Great brand.

    Cons

    Huge sense of entitlement. Company is run by engineers, product owners are all ex-engineers who may or may not know what is best for consumers or the marketplace. Company does not know how to fire low performers

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to fire low performers
