    Great company to work for, but difficult to move around internally & more politics than expected.

    Current Employee - Adops Media Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fantastic culture
    Great vision for the future
    Very bottom-led so great opportunities for growth and to lead
    Minimal micro-management
    Freedom to pursue projects you feel are worthwhile
    Great internal comms - very included in the company and the goings-on

    Cons

    Difficult to move internally, harder than expected
    Promotional cycles are more political than expected and tricky to navigate
    More politics in general than expected
    In the Sales Org side, too many managers are 'old-school' ad/media types which makes them very much an 'old boys club' and this doesn't mesh well with the Google culture itself.
