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

Pros

Challenging work environment, you get to learn a lot, especially in the beginning, huge scale of the projects, incredibly smart people, cool office space, perks (stock option and bonuses) and (healthy and yummy!) food. Variety of domains and products, you can always find something for yourself if you decide to change the project.

Cons

Difficult to get a promotion (you may get frustrated after a while), often have to work late, working from home is rarely an option, not so many career opportunities outside Mountain View, the most interesting projects are focused there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward long term and experienced employees.

    Pros

    Great place to work.
    Compensations and benefits are very generous.
    Interesting projects to work on.
    Easy to change groups, at least in engineering.
    Easy to relocate to a new office if you find projects related to your interest there.
    Get to work with some really smart people.

    Cons

    Has become a LARGE company but still tries to act as if it were a nimble startup.
    Promotion has become more about networking than anything else.
    Getting harder to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Promotion process is broken and needs fixing.
