No opinion of CEO

I worked at Google full-time

Pros

excellent marketing to it's employees. great benefits, onsite perks

Cons

I came in under an acquisition, excited to take on a new role! I found the acquisition team to be unprepared and without answers. My team members were confused about who even their new managers would be. While no one expected handouts, it was hard to find someone even interested in assisting those who came on with temporary roles. It was starting from scratch to find a place in the big Google world.

Advice to Management

stop acquiring companies when you don't know what to do with the employees

    I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people, colleagues as friends, great perks, food everywhere, competitive pay, lots of learning opportunities, cool to be a part of a generation-changing company

    Cons

    It's a big company which means opportunities for advancement require a lot patience, and it's actually slow to get things done internally as there are a lot of processes, may be becoming more complacent as the company's now a decade old

    Advice to Management

    Move the low-performers to other roles, have more visibility into management decisions, and regain some of that startup culture
