    Pros

    - Career Opportunities. Shifting from one team to another, one vertical to another is highly encouraged. It helps in your overall development also and the company is really vested in that.
    - The coworkers/peers are really smart and helpful people which again helps in the over all growth of a person.
    - The perks and office spaces area really attractive.

    Cons

    - Salary isnt upto the market stds.
    - It has now become a very big company, hence there are chances you might get lost.

    Pros

    Perks and compensation are two things which the company stands second to none. But even better is the peer group, you get to work with some of the smartest minds and more importantly learn from them. You need to be nimble to survive and grow in the company. Work culture is great and people openly criticize and compliment; you learn things about yourself - personal development. Company values every effort and innovation is respected.

    Cons

    You tend to get complacent with all the luxury around you. Most roles have skills which are not transferable.

  8. Overwhelming environment and enthusiastic people.

    Everyone there are always excite about there work. The work is interesting with lots of other benefits. Great place to work with lot of learning.

    Cons

    Sine the environment is so fast paced and everyone there are so talented that people there with low skills feel little backward and sometimes do not show up properly.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice to management is that make people more comfortable and do right placement of candidates in right teams.

    Pros

    Free Food
    Top Leadership (i.e. Directors & Above) is inspirational.

    Everything else is similar to any other MNCs.

    Cons

    Job Description and Actual Work can be diametrically opposite :)
    Significant number of Googlers are kind of pretentious.
    Google hires over-qualified candidates. ( because they can :P )
    Moving out of a role / office is very difficult. (You need to excel in your current role i.e. atleast get promoted once)
    Primary an Engg company. Anyone other than Engg. is an expendable resource.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing just fine. Primary reason, google have a presences in India is because it makes economic sense.
