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

    Pros

    Free food, amazing people, amazing vision - almost everything about this company is a pro. This is an incredible place to work.

    Cons

    Making the transition from a start up to Google was incredibly challenging. Since our product was being moved to the "stack," we had no updates and lost our competitive edge. This made it difficult for our sales teams to succeed, thus eliminating a number of roles.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, but as you grow through acquisitions, consider how these teams can best fit into the organization
