Big company so it takes time to know who's doing what. Difficult to be the best of the best in a place that's full of great talent.

    "Google protects bad managers."

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, smart people, interesting challenges, great brand.

    Cons

    If you get stuck with a bad manager, in a chain of people who aim to protect that person, good luck.

    Low base salary.

    Very hard to advance.

    Some groups can be very political.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about insisting on having great managers. Managers who have proven themselves incapable of great management (or even good or neutral management) should be dealt with accordingly, not protected.
