    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    An amazing company that invests in its people more than any place I've ever worked. Principled leadership and brilliant people.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of bureaucracy, inefficiency and swirl. Some of this is due to the company growing very quickly and not completely figuring out its processes and some of it is intentional (by the time they figure it out the business has changed).

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your smart employees to do the right thing and empower them to make more decisions. They won't let you down and you'll be more nimble.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Google.

    Interview

    J'ai passé 1 entretien téléphonique avec un HR, 4 entretiens sur skype, 1 entretien 1:1. Le processus de l'entretien a pris un peu plus d'un mois. J'ai appris le résultat assez vite.
