    I have been working at Google full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work atmosphere is pleasant . All associates and Managers behave like freinds but at work times they are official .

    Cons

    For working in Google the main criteria is that you need to have good communication skills to interact with business delegates. When we handle our responsibilities and total effort then we are also been rewarded with incentives.You find a growing career in the organisation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even the management need to reviewed by other officials as their ideas are been implemented on us and they need to be right to decision.

    Pros

    culture, benefits, perks, facilities, opportunity

    Cons

    Not a typical corporate set up so you will face trouble dealing with work culture at other places if you ever decide to move out. This also leads to stagnation at some point in cases where direction is a little unclear
