    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Virtually unlimited resources, many companies under the same umbrella, possibility to work on a very wide range of fields.

    Cons

    You'll be a drop in an ocean of many other very smart people. Which isn't all that bad, but if you are looking for front-lines action, you may be disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what people say. There's an increasing risk of management getting too detached from the "common folk" or the every day engineers.

    I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lovely place to work, great people, great bosses, great food. Intellectually stimulating, and a lax working atmosphere. Would do again!

    Cons

    Sometimes I notice a cult-like atmosphere surrounding our products that impedes our ability to improve them. Its not too bad, though.

    Advice to Management

    More hawaiian tuesdays!
