I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

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

Cons

I 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.
