I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

1. Free food, this is the best part in Google.
2. Talented people around you, and you will learn in day to day activities.

Cons

1. Long working hours, no work-life balance.
2. If you work only for 40hours, you won't get promoted and you will be sacked.

Advice to Management

Care for your employees.

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people at Google are amazing and great to work with. Pay, perks, and benefits are excellent. There is some new challenge to solve each day and the impact that you can have is monumental.

    Cons

    --Unless you're above a certain level, it can be tough to move internally despite what any recruiter might say to you.
    --Google changes every day which is great from a product perspective but can be frustrating as an employee who wants to have a consistent manager.

    Advice to Management

    Really focus on finding ways to create more movement within the company.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, amazing benefits, great perks, and stock options.

    Cons

    No work life balance even though they talk about it a lot. 85% of my team were single, and they worked 70+ hours a week. If you wanted to put out the same amount of work, and meet the expectations of your manager you had to do the same.
