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 worked at Google as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Brilliant people, excellent work atmosphere.
    If you have an idea, you can easily make it heard.
    Google really cares about its employees, if you're unhappy with your work in any way, you can easily change things up, and they'll help you do that.
    Amazing products with a huge audience - what you do has an impact.

    Cons

    With a bigger company, things naturally move slower. You don't have the same freedom to implement/iterate like you do in a smaller company.
