I worked at Google as a contractor (less than a year)

Pros

- GSoC was a great way to contribute to an Open Source project
 - good pay
 - great community and thorough code reviews

Cons

- can't really think of major cons; perhaps it would have been nice to organize some official meet-ups with all the project members
