Google cares deeply about its employees

Administrative Assistant III (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Google full-time for more than a year

Pros* work with brilliant, motivated, caring people
* excellent perks: free food, massages, flexible work schedule, wifi supported commute
* extremely fast paced: room for creative problem solving, new challenges

Cons* extremely fast paced: be prepared to keep up and not be discouraged by the amount of knowledge you're expected to absorb
* too many interesting things going on: can't attend all the classes, author visits, celebrity interviews, etc. -- need to have excellent time management

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
