"It really is the best place to work"

Pros

Career development is always top of mind for managers at Google. I love that we can work on a variety of projects.

Cons

Time is always a battle here, there are 19 priority projects that all need to get done in parallel, so you often feel like you're always busy. The feeling is great because you get a sense that you're working on big projects with large impact, but whew, you get tired sometimes.
