    Pros

    Best facilities and ambience to work which gives freedom to concentrate and exhibit your talent.

    Cons

    Worked for one of the worst process management company which has a hierarchy that has a zero knowledge on the work process and just looks at numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Please have a regular rating of such companies and test their management about the work knowledge and the way they run a process.

    Pros

    - Working with some of the smartest people in the world. Learning continuously
    - Develop some very good coding and design practices.
    - Opportunities to work on many kinds of problems.
    - Easy to move around to new teams/locations.
    - Amazing benefits

    Cons

    I think many of these cons are location specific, but for a remote office like India
    - Work-life balance goes down the drain
    - Most work is Mountain View centered, so offices with a big time zone difference feel cut-off, don't get the best projects.
    - Very speedy delivery expected. You can't move ahead if you can't work fast.

    Pros

    With the kind of projects Google is involved in and the kind of mission, you get motivated to get to office every morning irrespective of what your role is

    Cons

    Middle Management might not be the best and there is a virtual ceiling on the kind of jobs available in India

    Advice to Management

    Consolidating the various functions and Reducing overlap between Job families might be the next key thing Google has to address to stay quick & nimble

    Pros

    Flexible work hours. little to no bureaucracy. Ability to make huge impact by using the tremendous resources. Very open about why certain public decisions were taken.

    Cons

    Feels like there's a lot of cost cutting going on. The salaries also seem less than industry standards. Nothing else that I can think of.
