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

Pros

Brilliant co-workers, excellent perks, collaborative internal culture.

All things hinge on your manager and if they're not very good this will harm you.

Advice to Management

More oversight on low-level managers. They can ignore their responsibilities and suffer no consequences. Those consequences are borne by their direct reports.
