    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Perks (cafeterias, massage, wellness programs, commuter shuttles, bowling alley (!) etc. etc.) are amazing
    - Sharp people
    - Flexible work environment
    - Strong teamwork culture

    Cons

    - A lot of concurrent initiatives, but unsure of status/followthrough/reasons for these initiatives
    - A sense that we are over-hiring
    - Commitment to "dogfooding" is admirable--but sometimes it's OK to use a non-Google application to manage some of our work.
    - There is a tendency to promote people who need more seasoning. Managing people is not a perk of promotion, and not everyone can be a manager.

    Advice to Management

    - Clearer focus. Where are we going? How are we getting there?
    - Clearer feedback regarding expectations of managers.
    - Stronger management development program is needed.
