    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Google full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A lot of good, fun people to work with. The amenities are great, and the salary is very good.

    Cons

    It's become a big company with a ton of bureaucracy and politicking. The work doesn't present many (if any) opportunities to do creative work - it's all about taking the safe option that offers consistent revenue. So in the end, you end up just repackaging the same set of solutions over and over again.
