    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Google full-time

    Pros

    free food; smart people; overall interesting projects; flexible work hours (still long hours)
    The benefits and salary is very good but comparing to how much you end up working is not that lucrative;

    Cons

    - Managers are too busy to give feedback (only once a month). They are not on the same page with the lead and it's quite confusing what they're looking for sometimes.
    - They don't really put you in a team that matches your experience/interest. You can get stuck in a team for at least a year when you start working there
    - Extremely high workload


  2. Helpful (1)

    "Intense, much higher level of challenging environments than other employers in same position"

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Perks, benefits, bonuses, pay and public perception

    Cons

    Very easy to get burned out when trying to exceed expectations. Mandatory promotions required based on time employed to meet job expectations

    Advice to Management

    Become more aware of clicks and in house cronyism that develops due to competitive nature of environment. There are those who have learned to manipulate the system to get an edge.
