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

Pros

Benefits, perks, interesting projects, learning and growth opportunity. Google offers a lot of career development, and even a lot of entertainment onsite.

Cons

Overheads of checking in codes, politics in certain groups. Sometimes people are spending a lot of time working just on trivial stuff.

Advice to Management

Focus more on technical stuff

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed access to lots of resources and smart people. Really liked the author talks from interesting writers. Free food and benefits were awesome. Explaining to people at weddings that you work for Google alleviates all further discussion of details about what you do

    Cons

    Hard to feel like you make an impact; convoluted career advancement procedures (need to always be strategizing around leveling up). Since the company is so big, you have to make a concerted effort to grow your skill set outside of your immediate world.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job overall; just might not be the right fit for certain people who need more breadth in their job experience.
