I have been working at Google full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The perks are unparalleled. 3 meals a day and unlimited snacks, gym and comprehensive fitness program, laundry machines, bowling alley, intramural and other special interest clubs, full class schedules and speakers

Cons

Limited career progression for non-engineers. It's a great place to be if you're a middle aged and settled down with a family. It's become very political and hard to get things done with so many departments and matrices.

    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    Google has a very good culture. Management is very open with employees and information flows from top to bottom continuously.
    Google has a lot of learning opportunities.
    A lot of authors and researchers come to present their work and give talks to employees.
    Benefits are good.

    Cons

    The main campus is very crowded. People share either large cubicles or work in open space so it is very easy to get distracted specially when a group of people have a discussion or someone speaks on the phone. It can also be hard to find a good place make a personal phone call.
