    I worked at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people, very stress light in terms of downward pressure, loads of resource to be able to deliver your work, incredible career opportunities for those willing to battle for them and take sideways moves

    Cons

    Not a huge amount of upward career opportunities. Got a little top heavy with too many highly talented and ambitious people with not much to do. They got bored and began to turn on each other - turf wars! Also, it became unbelievably bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the trixes!!
