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

    you can move in dog years at google. it's a great opportunity career wise, and also has alot of challenge to it. if you're okay with a rapidly moving bar of expectations for achievement, then google would likely be your place. stay organized, ask questions, and don't waste time.

    Cons

    it is a big org, and that has its political and speed challenges, but in all its a wonderful place to work.
