    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais (Brazil)

    I worked at Google full-time

    Pros

    - Best compensation and benefits (compared to Brazilian average)
    - In touch with Google's technologies
    - If you survive the first two years, it can be a good job.

    Cons

    - Office is too small. It is like working for a family-owned business, so include all the cons of that.
    - Many people quit or are laid-off in their first or second year. So think about that before moving your life to that city. There is no other relevant software company there.
    - Many extra hours.
    - Micro management. It was the only job I ever had that my manager came to my desk and complained that I was not typing.
    - Not much going on. Since the office is small, you don't have many projects to choose, if you could choose.
    - No mobility. It is the only Google office in Brazil to have software engineer positions.
    - Forget about 20% projects, unless you use your "free" time for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to apply Google's core values and principles.
