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 Management

Reward long term and experienced employees.

    A rollercoaster ride of a company that's starting to grow up and act more like a mature corporation

    Pros

    You get to meet an amazing network of great people; people are loyal and hard working; make lots of great new friends; work with super smart people

    Cons

    Turning into a larger, more mature organisation; some less important or smaller projects are often cancelled; harder to start up new innovative projects.

    Advice to Management

    Product Managers should be allowed to be more hands on with the infrastructure.
