    Pros

    Unrivaled developer tools and fantastic coworkers.

    So many highly qualified people that almost everyone is overqualified for the job they're doing. Sales culture much weaker than product culture.

    Keep it up. More focus on tools and technology for Sales.

    I have been working at Google full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits. The food and the 401(k) are great. My colleagues, even though a little weird, are all really smart and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Lot's of back stabbing and credit stealing. I've seen some colleagues work on projects only to have someone else take all the credit. Very un-Googly if you ask me.

    Advice to Management

    Give credit where credit is due. If smart people are able to come up with projects or products that are successful, put them in charge of the project.

    Pros

    Yeah your work also the money could be amazing but also your learning a lot of about things in this world nobody else would of known till they read it

    Cons

    Not getting the work done and being stuck on something and making sure everything is up and going before the dead line

    Advice to Management

    I know I could never live without Google. Also I used Google with everything in my life, and not only me there's other people also uses Google on researching things. Google have been amazing. Also if I could work at Google I would be learning a lot about things, but also making sure other people can too. I think it would be amazing to work there. Not bc the money would be awesome which it would be perfect but also knowing how things been put together and learning new things every day. It's like your working and at the same time your learning. I think for anybody it would be a great Experience . I do not work here but I love researching on a daily basis lol also the biggest challenge is all the work you guys have too do to make it perfect or what not and if your on a time limit i think it could be a lot of stressful right there

    Pros

    Smart, driven, self-motivated, yet humble and nice people. Truly a wonderful, collaborative place to work that takes good care of its people and is having an impact on the world.

    Cons

    The sheer size of the organization can make it hard to get things done quickly due to all the stakeholder management.
