Pros

Insanely smart people everywhere (not just eng/prod). Looking for game changing ways to approach every problem. The food and shuttles are great benefits. You can end up working a lot but it's generally because you want to, not because you have to.

Cons

Has lost the start-up culture. It's big, it's political and it's expected. It's a gigantic company and compared to overall revenues and growth the company has managed to stay as "un political" as possible.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!

    Pros

    Google offers an environment that allows you to focus on your work. They take care of your three meals if need be, offer classes of all sorts, provide you with the space to rest, and etc. Even if your work is demanding, it is very easy to relax and take a break.

    Cons

    I would have liked more opportunities to meet different people. In general I think it is a quiet office where people work a lot.

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

    Pros

    Best and brightest engineers I've ever worked with, very forgiving atmosphere, easy to change teams if something interesting comes along, lots of opportunity to visit offices in other cities and countries.

    Cons

    Self-induced pressure to "keep up" with the best of the engineers, a few "difficult" personalities.

    Advice to Management

    The increasing number of "siloed" projects is not Googley.
