Pros

Work culture

Lateral approach to problem solving
Focus on people and values
Recognizes ex employees via alumni network - once a Googler, always a Googler- it's a great feeling.

Cons

Getting bureaucratic but that is to be expected due to the size of the company

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and continue bringing amazing products and technology to the world!

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

    Pros

    Overall, I believe it's one of the best employers out there. Teams consist of great international people, fantastic personalities. Company's HR really makes an effort to create positive working atmosphere. Generally, there's a good push for life/work balance. I guess you all have heard about perks - it's not a myth either. Despite some cons, I highly recommend working there.

    Cons

    As with all large corporations, there's a growing layer of middle management. This means bureaucracy, politics and the need to promote the so called "personal brand". Some managers need more education on how to motivate people. Proposals may go through a lengthy approval process. Recruitment is rather slow as I remember it.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly train middle management on people management skills and general human psychology. Create robust career development schemes.
