    I worked at Google full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, great company culture, access to so much training and technology, delicious free food, great perks and benefits

    Cons

    In some divisions there's a strong incentive to spend a lot of time on your own perf (self evaluation), there are a few employees that are "professional perfers", they're excellent at embellishing their work while more humble coworkers who do a better job might not shine as much. Also in smaller satellite offices it's difficult to have the visibility required for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the workers identified as top performers really are top performers at all the levels, and if they're on the sales side it would be useful to check with their customers how they feel. (e.g. did a sales rep block 3 days in the week to work on his or her perf when his or her customers are waiting for answers?). Otherwise amazing company to work for, it's very difficult to keep a great company culture with the huge growth from the last 15 years, good job!
