    Current Employee - Ops in Mountain View, CA (US)

    I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free food and looks good on the resume

    Cons

    There are some very snobbish, insulting, and vulgar people here. Imagine a country club and a technology company had a kid. Now that kid is a spoiled elitist brat that thinks everything they do is amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! Picking clean Ivy Leaguers and tossing them in a role is not always a plan for success. When it does work, don't burn them out and replace them like a strobe light bulb at a rave.

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work.
    Compensations and benefits are very generous.
    Interesting projects to work on.
    Easy to change groups, at least in engineering.
    Easy to relocate to a new office if you find projects related to your interest there.
    Get to work with some really smart people.

    Cons

    Has become a LARGE company but still tries to act as if it were a nimble startup.
    Promotion has become more about networking than anything else.
    Getting harder to get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Promotion process is broken and needs fixing.
