I have been working at Google full-time

Pros

Smart people. Being on the cutting edge of the action in Silicon Valley. An ambitious company.

Cons

Becoming more bureaucratic as it grows larger. Cost cutting really seems to be targeted at the "little people", rather than execs who still seem to do what they want.

Advice to Management

Stratification and hierarchy are increasing. This is a bad trend.f

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

    Pros

    Get to work with great people, Flexible hours, Make a difference everyday. Getting to experience such a wonderful work environment is such a pleasure everyday.

    Cons

    Google is honestly such a wonderful company, it will be hard to ever consider leaving. I'd advise Graduates who want to see more of the industry to learn their trade somewhere else, then work for the best!

    Advice to Management

    Wonderful people

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

    Pros

    I am empowered to do my best and help make teams more efficient and better. My manager doesn't babysit me, in fact, no one does, because Google hires the best and expects all employees to be motivated and productive.

    Cons

    Humility goes a long way at Google but there are still those that use traditional methods of advancement by trying to be the loudest voice or most long-winded in a room. I think this probably goes for most large companies no matter where you are.
