    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    Awesome perks, good benefits, smart colleagues, and some really great work being done by the company

    Cons

    Can be hard to move up quickly and often competitive even for internal transfers
    Lots of really intense type-A individuals, so it can be easy to get caught up in that perfectionist atmosphere
    HUGE. Just so many people.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to be authentic, transparent, and make decisions that really are best for our users
    Allow more flexibility in shaping your role or even creating a new one
