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

    Pros

    The culture is great. Google feeds employees well. A lot of smart people work here.

    I worked at Google as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Free food, snacks, drinks, perks, great environment. Working with so many smart talents around you. Building products that will impact lives of millions people.

    Cons

    - Google has become a big company so you won't get a feeling of startup anymore.
    - you'll be spoiled while working at Google and you will miss perks, etc. if you move somewhere else.
