    I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing technology. Great environment to learn in. High expectations. You need to be able to upramp quickly and come up to speed on emerging bleeding edge technologies in short order.

    Cons

    The hours can be very long. Google has a strong Not Invented Here mentality. So you will work with a lot of Google-only code. Everything from the development environment, build system, code review tool, automated test tool are in house only tools. They are all custom developed.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on Mobile. Be careful not to be too distracted by the Google X projects.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working here has been very fulfilling. There are lots of interesting people doing very cool work that motivates you everyday to get to the office.

    Cons

    Lot of work. There is no balance at times.
    People are doing useless work that is beneath their capabilities.
    However, it is up to you to find out what you can do to contribute to the project.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and let employees relax once in a while.
