    I worked at Google full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You have awesome, competent coworkers. The challenges are huge and you have unique opportunities that are only available at Google. The compensation and benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Blind allocation: Your initial assignment may have nothing to do with your interests or experience, and policy is that you must stay in that assignment for 18 months before you can transfer (though there are exceptions). Google's success makes it difficult to criticize; "How can we be doing it wrong if we're making this much money?"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of blind allocation.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
