    Pros

    Google has one of the best company environments I've ever worked in. People are friendly, intelligent, honest, and genuinely concerned about the user experience above all else.

    Cons

    As Google grows, it seems like there are hundreds of different projects going on at once. It is a bit overwhelming, but also very exciting to see that Google can foster such an open, start-up environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the incredible work! As Google has grown, the management team has successfully remained focused on the user and the employees.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    (1) Culture - very open, lots of respect for people, not hierarchical
    (2) People - highly driven, intelligent and very friendly
    (3) Opportunities - high growth, still at the beginning of the advertising shift online
    (4) Nature of the work - fast paced, highly innovative

    Cons

    (1) Worklife/balance - very hard working environment. Can be a con for some. Overall the company tries to manage this as best as possible, but the reality of being in a fast-growing highly innovative company is more work than in a slower paced environment
    (2) Getting large/bureaucratic - for a fast moving company, it has grown up since the mid-2000s and so is more bureaucratic than say a startup but MUCH LESS than other corporates

    Advice to Management

    (1) Keep thinking big but acting small - entrepreneurial/innovative in a much bigger field / company
    (2) Continue to hire the best - this drives all the pros of working at Google
