Former Employee - Product Manager in Mountain View, CA
Former Employee - Product Manager in Mountain View, CA

I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Environment that encourages everyone to stretch themselves with well aligned goals.

Cons

Unforgiving if achievement isn't at a top level

Advice to Management

Every career has cycles of ups and downs, unrealistic to expect only the upward trajectory without some transitional periods
