Frightening work/life balance. Colleagues do 80 hours a week, so exhausting speed of work.

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

    Pros

    You work with very clever people on interesting projects. Everything is set up for you to be incredibly productive. The perks are also ridiculous.

    Cons

    There are pretty much no cons.

    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great perks, great offices, great benefits. The company keeps evolving and has some excellent prospects ahead of it in new, unexpected business areas.

    Cons

    People management can be pretty brutal, especially in the way performance is managed. It leaves too much space for favouritism and can be hugely demoralising.

    Advice to Management

    The current performance management system has two effects: 1) sticky middle management who aren't fundamentally accountable 2) People don't necessarily want career at Google. You want the experience and then you want to go somewhere where you feel you're genuinely appreciated.
