    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    The obvious pros are the perks, but they extend beyond the well known free food and slides. They do great 401k matching, have great health care, offer a lot of extra-curricular like activities for employees. There is a lot to do and they work to keep employees happy.

    Cons

    The salary is less than you can get at similar companies. If you don't care about or take advantage of the perks, its especially obvious.

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

    Pros

    Great people, exceptional benefits and perks, lovely campuses.

    Cons

    Long hours, employee evaluation system is based on a bell curve, so even a rockstar team has employees "below expectations".

    Advice to Management

    Stop requiring managers to grade employees on a curve and pit employee against employee.
