I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

Pros

* work with brilliant, motivated, caring people
* excellent perks: free food, massages, flexible work schedule, wifi supported commute
* extremely fast paced: room for creative problem solving, new challenges

Cons

* extremely fast paced: be prepared to keep up and not be discouraged by the amount of knowledge you're expected to absorb
* too many interesting things going on: can't attend all the classes, author visits, celebrity interviews, etc. -- need to have excellent time management

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The ability to bring fresh ideas to the table. It's a very creative environment and employees are given broad leeway to implement new things.

    Cons

    The hours - typically 16 hour days - are too much even though the environment is great. That's the only drawback I ever saw at Google.

    Advice to Management

    Just remember the employees on the bottom rung of the ladder. We contribute as well.
