Pros

Great perks and pay. You can be proud to tell your mom you work there. Work/Life balance is good. Employees are good people to know now and for the future. Work on great products that hundreds of millions or billions of people will use.

Cons

as much as it does not want to be one, it is a big company and too easy for people/projects to get lost in the mix. NY Office is big, but definitely suffers form not being in Mountain View.

    Pros

    The teamwork is wonderful and supportive, though competitive as all get out. Recruiting for the best of the best is an interesting and vital experience at Google. The ATS is wonderful, compared to others out there. The culture is vital, dynamic and engaging.

    Cons

    The up and down sides are there is a lot of change. Google does not get stale, that is for sure. But the processes change a lot which makes it a little less sticky than it "should" be, IMHO. There is a lot of social competitiveness that is very intense, but that does drive excellence, even if you do feel like your job could end any minute.

    Advice to Management

    I think the leaders need to lead more and accept the performers that are not excellent but highly functional. That way you can keep people for the long haul.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, amazing people that make you grow, and amazing work. You really feel like what you're doing has an impact on the world.

    Cons

    It's easy to become a "number" at Google if you don't put yourself out there. You have to be assertive and willing to throw out new ideas. That said, depending on your job role, often that can be harder than it seems.

    Advice to Management

    I really loved my experience with management. Great mentorship experience and I received a lot of specific feedback about my work and progress.
