Approves of CEO

I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

great work life balance. Very good benefits, most folks are nice. There are people who pay attention to the small details.

Cons

Some people have gotten to expect the benefits they receive, making them quite unpleasant to work with.

Advice to Management

Please fix the culture, people are becoming more and more entitled, and less and less willing to work.

    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many smart people to learn from, competitive compensation, chance to work on big projects.

    Cons

    1) Google hires smartest people with rocket science background but asks them to do simple things. 2) Too many managers. If you are talented engineer you will soon find yourself alone in the room with 6 managers discussing what you should do next.

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing learning opportunities if you are willing to spend the time looking for them.

    Cons

    Vendors and contractors are treated worse and worse as time goes by, where many are being moved off the campuses into buildings without Google standard facilities, like cafes or gyms.

    Advice to Management

    Treat vendors better.
