    I have been working at Google full-time for more than 5 years

    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.

    Pros

    Free food and looks good on the resume

    Cons

    There are some very snobbish, insulting, and vulgar people here. Imagine a country club and a technology company had a kid. Now that kid is a spoiled elitist brat that thinks everything they do is amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! Picking clean Ivy Leaguers and tossing them in a role is not always a plan for success. When it does work, don't burn them out and replace them like a strobe light bulb at a rave.
