No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Most intelligent coworkers you could ever imagine. Wonderful feeling of camaraderie. Employees are trusted, respected and treated like adults to get on with their work. Very flat management structure means you're not left feeling powerless. Everyone is empowered to make a difference and to be heard. Amazing benefits.

Cons

Most intelligent coworkers you could ever imagine can lead to impostor syndrome. You need to be careful to balance your work and personal life, but the drive to sometimes work too hard comes from within when you work at Google; it's not something that's pushed on you by the company or colleagues.

Advice to Management

We miss Eric.

    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
