    I have been working at Google

    Pros

    Google is a wonderful place to work. New York office is fantastic and I love my team. I encourage everyone to apply.

    Cons

    The cons of working at Google are that if you are not an engineer, there is not as much flexibility and creativity allowed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to senior management at Google is to expand their teams beyond looking at what school someone attended or what their GPA is.

    I worked at Google

    Pros

    Google was a great place to work with colleagues, and grow my career. I am forever grateful to being lucky enough to be a part of Google.

    Cons

    It was hard to keep up with the over achieving personalities and keep up with the fast pace of the new hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on growing the search business- don't lose sight of what made Google 'Google' and keep employee retention as a focus.
