    I worked at Google full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Generous benefits package, including competitive salary, free food, a beautiful office... - Friendly colleagues from all over the world. - Company is supportive of internal mobility. Google is a great company for anybody considering international career opportunities.

    Cons

    - Many sales jobs are extremely repetitive and boring, and they offer very limited room for growth. It sometimes feel like working in a glorified customer support call centre. - Sales organisation at Google is extremely political. Career growth is completely linked to internal politics and zero-impact projects purely made for visibility. - Promotions and your level affect the amount of internal opportunities... available, so you need to play the politics game in order to advance your career, otherwise you can get stuck in boring roles.

    Advice to Management

    - Pay more attention to actual clients' needs, rather than focusing in internal metrics and priorities. - Support employees' career growth by rewarding real impact projects, and not just internal politics and visibility.
