I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Just what you would expect- exciting, innovative and creative culture, it is Google people! Perks, pay and people are a plus as well.

Cons

At its core Google is just selling ads, which is less glamorous and intellectually stimulating than the other business lines that receive more press.

Advice to Management

Focus on innovation.

    I worked at Google full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The well known perks are all there. You are given quite a bit of freedom and autonomy within your project or teams scope. The work is challenging and interesting.

    Cons

    Good luck taking advantage of the perks. I felt like I was sneaking out anytime I walked over to get a coffee or talk a quick walk around the building for a break. Expected to be at work from 8am to 11pm. Was reprimanded for talking advantage of amenities instead of working (an hour out of a 14 hour day)

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat people like machines.
