Fun, learned a lot

Software Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsAt Google there is free food and smart people. The company was large enough that the benefit plans were good.

ConsI thought the culture was a little alpha-male dominant and could edge out the quieter types. Depending on your manager there could be very little interest in your promotions, etc.
