Pros

Google has a tremendous brand equity, incredibly brilliant colleagues, and it has a culture that truly fosters innovation. The work environment is generally fun and challenging environment.

Cons

The hours are very long and hard, and work/life balance still needs to be improved. Management says they are doing their best to make this better, though it has not improved.

Advice to Management

Management needs to avoid changing things at the last minute for certain functional groups within the organization. Sometimes they make last minute changes to decisions, which causes a pain for the employees down the ladder.

    A sense of entitlement from some employees
    With so many reports per manager, it is easy to get over looked if you don't speak up
    Group offices. Sometimes I really want a door and a quiet place to work

    Advice to Management

    The management is doing great. The feeling of trust I get from management at Google helps me to feel committed to my work. Of course, mileage may vary depending on individual managers, but I've been very lucky here. And Eric is the best CEO I've encountered.

    Pros

    I was amongst some of the most hard driven and motivated co-workers while at Google. I had very little to complain about, being surrounded by some of the brightest and most interesting people I have ever met. The team and the atmosphere made for a great work environment, the perks helped but it was more knowing you were all part of a team and accomplishing great things. Senior management wanted to help you and would give you the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    See review headline - "Great place to work... "

    Advice to Management

    Senior management wanted to help you and would give you the tools to succeed. They will listen and make 1:1 a priority.
