    Pros

    Resume building, energy of company perks are so so.,

    Cons

    Arrogant employees, better than thou, work you to exhaustion and are never honest about performance

    Advice to Management

    There are excellent employee ps right under your nose and they bring more to your company than you see but all you care about are trophy degrees from an Ivy league college. If you quit listening to people, you will end up with thise degreed people gunning for your position.

    I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of energetic people that work at a different pace. Idea conception, to testing, to production can be as little as a day, in various fields.
    Great perks (food, massage, games) to keep you energized while you are at the campus.

    Cons

    No telecommuting - pretty much the rule.
    Some peer reviews can be nasty as people are indexed against each other.
    Management is always given stretch goals.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place better support tools for people whose managers can't be "trusted" with honest feedback.
    Truly ask people why they are leaving - you paid a lot to bring talent on board, identify what went wrong.
