    I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work life balance
    Respectful environment
    Stimulating peers & jobs
    Strong internal mobility and good career paths
    Above average salary & high quality perks (gym/food/massages/health care...)

    Cons

    Some teams may be too big and progression may sometimes be very political.
    High performers are sometimes less rewarded than good story tellers.
    Certain employees can be over qualifier for the missions they are given.

    Advice to Management

    Continue cultivating the autonomy of your teams, keep on giving high level directions. Value people that may not be vocal but high performers vs. people who speak a lot but don't do much.
