    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    great side benefits, free food, nice setting for a corporation. Some of the people were nice to work with, young atmosphere

    Cons

    all benefits at Google are provided so as to keep you at work as long as possible. Serious egotism is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Google leadership needs to remove themselves from their self created pedestal. The world would not end if Google suddenly no longer existed.
