I have been working at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

People, environment, and pay/perks are great. They really spoil you. Projects are challenging so you really get to grow your skills daily. Coworkers are the smartest, funniest, and most conscientious I have ever worked with.

Cons

Pace can be relentless. Not a great place to move up the ladder because there is so much competition. Promotions to management seem pretty political. Your manager may not have any interpersonal and leadership abilities. If that happens, try to move on quickly.

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Smart coworkers. Inspiring company. I left Google for two years to get an MBA and recently rejoined the company. I've had exposure to other companies and they just don't compare.

    Cons

    Promotions are few and far between and career progression is tough to manage, but when successful, it pays off. You must be a self-starter to succeed.
