    I worked at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Google runs smoothly. Engineers don't have to worry about management getting in the way. The company is moving in a good direction and is staying innovative. The people there really care about making a good product and doing good by their users.

    Cons

    It was hard for me to attain a work/life balance. Google is very family friendly, so people do work reasonable hours, but a lot of people, including me, worked much longer hours.

    I worked at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You're going to learn a lot about developing high-quality code at Google, guaranteed. Lots of experts around to help you, really great coworkers, world-famous benefits, and the expectation that you'll produce real code during your internship. I highly identify with their values and core mission, and most people there feel the same way. They also paid me a lot for an inexperienced intern.

    Cons

    It can feel slightly bureaucratic due to its size, but really not to a huge extent. I had maybe one 15-minute meeting per week, a couple HR things to deal with here and there, and that's it.
