    Pros

    All of the things you've already read about: Food, Dogs, 401k.

    Looks great on a resume: When you're ready to move on in your career, having Google on your resume in any context almost guarantees an initial interview just because folks are curious about Google and why you would ever want to leave.

    Cons

    No career development / ladder / useful feedback. If you're not Eng, you're nothing.

    FAIR WARNING: When you realize there is more to a career than free food and you start to apply with other companies you will most likely be asked if you know how to behave yourself / act like an adult / perform in a traditional office environment.

    Advice to Management

    You can't hire top tier college attending, 4.0 earning, type A, OCD personalities then expect them to do menial work. Contract it out, or recognize that there are plenty of people in this world who would be THRILLED to do said menial tasks, and get rid of the ridiculous hiring requirements for those positions.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The food was great. The place was fun to work. The people are capable and smart.

    Cons

    The management was too far removed from our group. They really had no idea what we did or how. And they never asked. The would make power plays against each other that would adversely affect the day to day of the people working below them. There was a very strong feeling of working "for" them, Not "With" them.

    Advice to Management

    lose the OKR's. People just write what you want them to and it is ineffective.
