Great company, great people, lots of opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

Pros(1) Culture - very open, lots of respect for people, not hierarchical
(2) People - highly driven, intelligent and very friendly
(3) Opportunities - high growth, still at the beginning of the advertising shift online
(4) Nature of the work - fast paced, highly innovative

Cons(1) Worklife/balance - very hard working environment. Can be a con for some. Overall the company tries to manage this as best as possible, but the reality of being in a fast-growing highly innovative company is more work than in a slower paced environment
(2) Getting large/bureaucratic - for a fast moving company, it has grown up since the mid-2000s and so is more bureaucratic than say a startup but MUCH LESS than other corporates

Advice to Senior Management(1) Keep thinking big but acting small - entrepreneurial/innovative in a much bigger field / company
(2) Continue to hire the best - this drives all the pros of working at Google

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
