    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture. Great food. Lots of energetic people with a variety of interests. Whatever you're into, you'll find a group of people to do it with at Google, whether it's ports, fitness, music, or racing.

    Cons

    Managers don't seem to be incentivized to help you advance your career. The promotion process is the biggest pain you can imagine, and completely self-propelled. If you're not the type that likes to promote yourself, you'll be stuck at the bottom for a long time.

    Pros

    Good technology, smart people, can move within company with descent support.

    Lots of energy and time wasted on politics. More people than the work needed.

    Advice to Management

    Cross sites interaction is tough.
