    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Useful for positive communication with users.

    Cons

    Used for abusive communication against users.

    Advice to Management

    Benevolence is the key word. No user is 100 percent pure of thought. Don't pray on people's negative thought only to destroy them. Remember, you are not perfect either. Don't do onto others what you wouldn't like others do onto you. Keep the negative contents of your head within. Stop.

    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.
