    I worked at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits. A culture that motivates a strong work ethic. Access to some of the worlds best leaders in areas of machine learning and large scale data algorithms.

    Cons

    Not as much freedom to innovate as one might expect. The quarterly review cycle tends to throw out the idea of trying for a longer term vision.

    Advice to Management

    Throw out the quarterly review cycle, or at least keep the impact on day-to-day decision making to a minimum. It is too short a time-frame to draw conclusions. Also, drastically change your hiring process. It is far too slow, and the slowness is built into the painstaking steps that the interviewers have to take to support the interview process.
