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

Pros

Great challenges, not a lot of politics in the area I work. Opportunities arise if you are resourceful to go work in start up like environments within a very large company.

Cons

Sometimes a bit fragmented in priorities and the pace can be challenging at times as it's pretty relentless

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people. The environment. The technology. Working at Google is really a unique experience that makes you grow.

    Cons

    The growing speed of such organization might generate some management problems if not properly handled.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful when you recruit new people, don't just hire them because they have done something crazy in their previous job but think if they could be a perfect fit for your team.
