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 Management

Reward long term and experienced employees.

    Pros

    Has the best employee environment and gives the best facilities to them. A family like atmosphere inside company without bounds makes you enjoy your work.

    Cons

    It actually has none as far as I could find. You name anything and Google had already thought of it and worked upon it.
