    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.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Google Network has some One drawback is there are no inventory level guarantees. This is true of any network, but with Google it can get even more difficult as you can’t reserve inventory (expensive home page buyouts aside). A bidder can bump you out of certain placements by bidding higher and raising his maximum CPM.

     that should concern its competition. For starters, it can disclose the sites you run ads on and report performance on a site-by-site basis. This enables you to focus buys on those sites (inventory allowing). An inability to see where your ads appear has always been a barrier for some advertisers.
