    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Great opportunity to get in touch with the advanced framework and techniques
    2. Great place for learning new skills
    3. People are all nice

    Cons

    1. The work done at Google for an intern or a low level SDE seems too "normal" in some teams, i.e. it doesn't make much impact, and it seems that it can be done by anyone with basic programming skills.
    2. The work done at Google uses a lot of it's own framework (though it is very advanced), which is inaccessible outside. It makes it difficult to directly adapt the skills learned from Google to another place.

    Advice to Management

    The recruiting process is too slow, it seems there are all always reasons to postpone the HC(Hiring Committee) meetings.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's in the power sector. So the salary is not bad.

    Cons

    Everything you do has to be under strict scrutiny of your superviser and has to gain his approval. Not much space for your self to call the shot and learn from failure. Bad motivation mechanism.

    Advice to Management

    Better motivation mechanism. Those who work harder should be duely rewarded.

    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Perfect team working environment, everyone is easy going and eager for a help. You know they are professional but they will never regard them like that. Ideas are highly respected, which is a must for such high-tech companies, since the innovations are all come from some impossible even crazy ideas.

    Cons

    This is the hardest question, I also told my manager like this way in my last day in Google

    Advice to Management

    If a team has a healthy base principles, then any operations inside such rules can be accepted. This is the key to some break through nowadays.
