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

    Pros

    A great company with a great history that still allows you to make contributions that can have significant impact. Awesome work culture.

    Cons

    I used to love this company and thought we contributed a great deal to help the industry and society, and that we could do no harm. Unfortunately, I don't believe this about the company anymore, and I have recently lost a great deal of confidence in the current leadership team. The company has recently become run much more top down than the bottoms up nature of the years past.

    Advice to Management

    I think the current leadership is causing significant harm to the company to advance Google+ in a flawed way. I think both Google and Google+ would both do better without the current leadership's undermining of other company priorities and products to increase traffic to G+. Users are being harmed, trust is being broken, and goodwill lost. The CEO and leadership team is also taking the idea of more wood behind fewer arrows to an unnecessarily unhealthy extreme in my opinion.
