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

Pros

The roles have been challenging, dynamic, interesting, ambiguous and evolving. The people that I've gotten to work with are great (for the most part)--smart, driven, effective--they're what has kept me around for so long.

Cons

Bias towards the new, shiny, sexy projects often leaves Operations teams and other cost centers at a loss for resources and support. The basic conflict of interest between Ads Sales and Ads Quality/anti-fraud teams is a constant source of frustration.

Advice to Management

Handle low-performing middle managers more effectively. Understand that everyone knows how poorly a manager scores on their evaluations, so when they're kept around and/or promoted, it reflects poorly on everyone above that's involved.
