    I have been working at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Google opens jobs for better jobs in the IT industry. Linkedin, Facebook, Baidu, they all pay more.

    Cons

    I was interviewed to work with SMB Services which means you will talk 4 hours daily with angry customers on the phone. It´s a call center. That´s not why I graduated from Brazil´s best university for. Stupid job and extremely stressfull. Bad management, mine was only worried about her organic dietary restrictions and keeping her hair blond instead of providing support for her employees.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot rely on the name Google forever and keep doing bsusiness led by stupid recently graduated from University employees.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Free food

    -Very young management and college-like atmosphere

    -Google's market dominance and absence of significant competitors

    -Potential for high salaries at the higher management levels

    -Very smart people

    Cons

    -Low compensation for the lower positions

    -Limited promotion opportunities

    -Most people here are over qualified for the type of work they do, resulting in lack of challenge.

    -Becoming increasingly bureaucratic as it grows, which means more budget approvals and red tape.

    -Hard to diffirentiate yourself amongst all the smart people, making it harder to advance.

    -The lower pay in Google is supposed to be balanced out by all the 'perks' provided to you in the office, however unless you think that someone else knows better your consumption habits, you would probably want to have the cash instead!

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas and encourage cross-team collaboration.
