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

Pros

Great people, great perks. The work is interesting, and there can be a great 'if it is broke, go fix it' atmosphere.

Cons

Long hours, I work with a team overseas - and so my days can sometimes go from 5AM to 6-7, maybe 8 PM. It takes a long time to be promoted, due to having great people around you.
