    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent compensation, benefits, perks, possibility of travel, variety, opportunities to take on lots of different projects, freedom to define the scope and direction of work, smart people.

    Cons

    Leadership with ADD, constant change of direction/priorities, reorgs, churn, turnover, duplication of effort, lack of accountability, chaos, etc. that sometimes leads to inferior results, unfinished work, unequal treatment, and burnout. In some offices, overcrowding and poor physical conditions.

    Advice to Management

    They need to do more to retain existing employees long term and encourage better work-life balance: the hiring juggernaut is not a solution to attrition. I also think that the decision to grow headquarters disproportionately to all others is an unfortunate mistake.

    Pros

    The diversity of opportunity. Google touches so many industries from ad-tech to consumer software and hardware. There is something for everyone at Google and it's very easy to find a role on a product that you truly care about. The culture is incredible and work-life balance is great.

    Cons

    If you live in SF and work in MTV the commute is long. Otherwise there are very few cons to working at Google. They've created an incredible corporate environment.
