    Pros

    Google is a wonderful place to work. New York office is fantastic and I love my team. I encourage everyone to apply.

    Cons

    The cons of working at Google are that if you are not an engineer, there is not as much flexibility and creativity allowed.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to senior management at Google is to expand their teams beyond looking at what school someone attended or what their GPA is.
