Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Great compensation and benefits, fantastic food and snacks, which really boost morale. A culture of respect, and opportunity to work on interesting things, and interact with many different people. Good opportunities to travel to other Google offices. As much opportunity for professional and personal growth as one would like to have.

Cons

It's a big place, spread out across many locations. Though it's a positive when it comes to travel, it can be a little challenge for getting to know others and to be known yourself.

Advice to Management

For the executive management, I have no complaints. But for some of the middle and upper management, it is not always clear to me what their mission is. We have visibility into their "official" missions, but the day-in and day-out is not as visible.

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

    Pros

    Perks, free lunches, etc. Google setup the current model for a lot of younger companies around the world and successfully created a culture of sharing and community.

    Cons

    Google will let you balance your life, but unless you're really good, expectations are high and a lot of overtime will be needed to reach up the ladder. Google won't force you, but it is still a meritocracy.

    Pros

    Amazing coworkers and collaborative culture, interesting and difficult problems, world class infrastructure that makes solving them easier. Many learning and career development opportunities.

    Cons

    Worst part is the interview process, but once you get past that there's very little to complain about. There's a bit of bureaucracy associated with larger companies, but not nearly as bad as at other places of similar size.
