Low attention span means that projects change a lot, but that also means faster innovation so its a double edged sword

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

    Pros

    The benefits and perks of working at Google are outstanding. As a whole, I think the company does care about its employees, at the highest levels.

    Cons

    The sales org is a big bureaucratic mess.
    Most decisions are made by upper management with a very short-term focus - and everyone has to play along - to get that director his/her next bonus.
    Promotions are 100% driven by politics vs. how you perform in your core role.
    There are much better parts of the company to be in - but you won't be able to get in to them in the Ann Arbor office. The good roles are all centralized in Mountain View.
    HR here is evil. Any move you make, they will look for ways to claw back your merit increases and even make you sign that you will not negotiate salary if you get an offer. Then give you a poor offer.

    Advice to Management

    Open up more roles to remote offices.
    Promote for core role competency vs. side projects and politics.
    Promote more from within vs. external hires (who have 2+ years learning curve).
    Make HR less evil.
