    Pros

    A great place to launch your career. Many talented people are still working at Google although there has been a constant exodus of top talent. A nice to place to network and learn.

    Cons

    The business model has matured so there might not be much fast growth ahead. It has become a mature company just like Ebay and Microsoft. But it is still very respectable company in internet industry. Limited room for career advancement. But it seems that those without much technical skills/degree usually get promoted quickly by just pushing engineers/analysts very hard. Those who do real work get stuck at the bottom of company structure.

    Advice to Management

    It might be useful to re-examine how promotion happens and to evaluate people by the actual work they have done instead of how many emails/meetings they created.

    Pros

    Opportunity for big impact
    Fun people
    Can afford to do anything they decide to -- its not a startup experience

    Cons

    Large and growing size means your team and manager are your destiny more than Google overall
    Few opportunities to grow into leadership positions
    Some things take too long to get done now that there are so many people to consult before locking a decision

    Advice to Management

    Focus -- there are still too many projects, moving parts
