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

    Pros

    Working at scale - you can have a global impact in almost any area.
    Getting to Think Big -
    Strong technical peers - highly educated, exceptionally skilled workforce.

    Cons

    Too big to take risks - hard to justify taking major risks with the core offering (search and ads).
    Partners are threatened by size - hard to get data from partners who are afraid we're going to eventually enter their markets.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks, especially in the area of user privacy.
