    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Diversity and lots of talented people in there, management style of 7:1 and very each to communicate with manager and director, peers are wonderful and love the 360 peer review system

    Cons

    Organization gets too big and gets hard to stay in cozy start up environment during 2005 when I first joined. Some managers are getting less qualified as they are from top MBA schools, too much strategy talks but no implementations, too political sometimes!

    Advice to Management

    get rid of those disqualified manager who's just there to play politics and pretending they care, but actually lack of technical skills, managements skill but just textbook knowledge from school

    I have been working at Google as an intern

    Pros

    Lots of very smart people; interesting, real world problems; lots of resources and data. Great benefits and employee-friendly atmosphere. Transparent review process.

    Cons

    Lots of programming overhead make some simple tasks very difficult. Everyone spends a lot of time at work. They have family-friendly policies, but it seemed like the culture was to work not just very hard, but also very long. The pressure to ship code means you might have a lot of all-nighters.
