I worked at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Smart, driven colleagues, near limitless resources, ideal work environment, excellent work/life balance, international work opportunities, opportunities for growth (more intellectual than career)

Cons

The vast majority of the people who made Google what it is today have move on and in many cases have been replaced by cookie-cutter MBA types, ex Microsoft employees and management consultants. This combined with Google's massive growth (18k employees in Mountain View alone) has made it less of the agile innovator it once was but rather a techno-advertising behemoth.
