    I worked at Google full-time

    Pros

    cool, smart people, pretty laid back, lots of the perks of being a google employee (e.g. games, lots of free food, etc)

    Cons

    the management was pretty bad, they didn't really listen to engineers and in particular treated engineering as if they were children

    Advice to Management

    don't treat your engineers like children, other than that it was fine (all perks were good, pay was fine etc)

    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    Loved the people when I started, loved the perks, loved the flexibility and trust in employees. Awesome opportunities for side projects

    Cons

    Sales team is big and bureaucratic, not startup-like at all. Hard to get out of sales onto other teams. Very few opportunities in Boston due to it being a remote office.
