    Pros

    Great for learning. Fast-paced. Learn how to get things done. Fantastic pay & benefits. Easy access to senior folks. The higher management are full of visionaries and serve as an inspiration for the rest of the company.

    Cons

    Internal mobility is quite hard. Sometimes, even good people struggle to survive in the company due to very high expectations. Here, you are either continuously moving forward or you get out of the way - you cannot remain at the same level of performance for a long time.

    I worked at Google full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Outstanding company, great brand value and tag to have, an opportunity to feel like you're part of a company changing the way the world live, plays and works, super offices, some very smart people, great perks

    Cons

    It never feels like you're doing work worth doing, Google always hires smarter people than necessary to get work done and they know that they're Google and hence pay less than what you will get at other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach employees skills that will be useful in the real world and not just in the mythical world that is the internet, be honest about the level and nature of work before hiring, stop hiring smarter people than necessary to get the job done.
