    I have been working at Google full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Perks are great (food, massages, etc)

    Cons

    EMEA employees work insane hours to serve the cult of Google MTV, pay and benefits are poorer, work culture in commercial roles is dog eat dog, heaviest bureaucracy I’ve encountered, and they treat their external vendors and partners horribly. Management is insanely hierarchical and ego ridden (Directors and VPs get different caps for travel over Google’s who travel frequently - its the only place I’ve had to pay out...

    Advice to Management

    You’ve seriously lost your way. I know it’s hard to scale at the rate you’re growing, but with the increased focus on commercials, the lack of attention paid to employee well being , and the way you’re pumping management’s head full of how great they are, the actual people who make your company great are suffering. If you don’t get in front of this, you’ll be Amazon.

        Pros

        Amazing people to work with, exciting technology, high impact work.

        Cons

        For a company that is all about scale, its biggest problem is scaling to the # employees and the expanding breadth of scope. Some areas are very top heavy.

        Advice to Management

        Don't lose the engineering focused culture of trust and openness.
