Pros

Good cultural foundation in the Operating Values, diversity networks. Lots of smart, engaged employees at the mid to lower level. Excellent benefits and workplace environment.

Cons

Particularly in the past two years, the "say/do" ratio of senior management has become increasingly inconsistent. Each successive restructuring was also more dysfunctional than the previous one. Lack of clarity about which responsibilities were transferred (if at all) and to whom. Especially an issue for support organizations depending on the business units for direction.

Advice to Management

Senior management, especially in the Small Business group, has become a close-knit club seemingly incapable of making hard trade-offs. Instead of making tough decisions about killing projects or initiatives,they appear to reply on eliminating the jobs, but without clarity around what work should be eliminated as well. The result is an even more stressed-out "survivor" population.

    Pros

    Great products, great culture, great work life balance- work hard and play hard culture. Meet real customers that use and love our products.

    Cons

    Like every other corporate American company, there are some bad managers within the company and there are some bad departments that are dysfunctional.

    Advice to Management

    Keep institutional knowledge by promoting from within - there are several employees in the middle ranks that have a lot of knowledge of the processes and systems that can be great leaders

    Pros

    The money - the salaries are good, and they still pay bonuses
    The benefits - again, very good
    Telecommuting OK or OK part of the time

    Cons

    Completely political - all rewards are for good politics and allying yourself with the right people
    No promotions - they hire from outside
    No communications between groups - not only is there rework, but the same mistakes are made
    People are not social - they do their work and go home (at least in Mountain View)
    Technically mediocre

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within
    HR is terrible - they send one candidate to a group and tell them that's all there is
    Clean out lower management - Mgrs and Sr Mgrs - really poor quality stuff
    Reward excellence and do not reward poor performance
    Your staff is amazingly unaware of taxes and accounting - train them and then make that knowledge a requirement for new hires - times are tough - be picky!
