I have been working at Google full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Challenging work environment, you get to learn a lot, especially in the beginning, huge scale of the projects, incredibly smart people, cool office space, perks (stock option and bonuses) and (healthy and yummy!) food. Variety of domains and products, you can always find something for yourself if you decide to change the project.

Cons

Difficult to get a promotion (you may get frustrated after a while), often have to work late, working from home is rarely an option, not so many career opportunities outside Mountain View, the most interesting projects are focused there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward long term and experienced employees.

    I have been working at Google full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    in my relatively short experience so far, I have to say it's been a wonderful experience of working in a highly dynamic company with very smart and dedicated people. Google employment is literally what you make of it. I especially appreciate the possibility to rotate on positions within the compay and to take your projects in addition to your core joy.

    Cons

    the process of performance review might be more transparent. It is also highly dependent on your manager, which can be a positive and negative aspect at the same time. Role of an AdWords associate is prone to routine after certain period of time.
