    Pros

    Google is still a great place to go out and have an impact as an individual engineer and to have a chance to work with other awesome engineers. Management regularly makes it clear how important the individual contributor is to the company, and routinely solicits options and ideas from across the company.

    There has been a lot of work on addressing past weakness with career development through more manager training, more developed mentorship programs, and more talks / transparency on the performance review process. This has been part of a trend in the company to stay aware of what issues are concerning employees across the board and attempt to fix them.

    Cons

    The non-confrontational culture of Google, though generally a perk, causes some issues. Under-performance is still often ignored or poorly-addressed. Interpersonal conflicts can become passive-aggressive.

    Advice to Management

    Google is a good place to work and the devotion to continuously improving the workplace is well-known and appreciate. Though some individuals can be annoying, and most have never used the privilege, employees love that they can bring up their concerns openly to upper management.
