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

Pros

awesome benefits, great salary, options, everyone's nice, intellectual, free food, very casual

Cons

Being such a world renown company, each dept is very restrictive of allowing external access. It's a bit difficult to get cross-departmental collaboration in general.

    Google demands high-quality work with minimal training ("like drinking from a firehose"), but great, people and support!

    I worked at Google as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Because one is consistently surrounded by highly intelligent people, I found that there is more than ample opportunity to learn something new & exciting each day.

    Cons

    Though it may seem shiny and perfect from the outside, my experience working for Google was more like working for a cluster of small start-ups: inter-team communication was inconsistent and unreliable, bureaucracy was rampant even for small tasks/changes, and opportunities for growth or even lateral movement, both within and cross-team, weren't made apparent.
