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

    Pros

    You get exposed to so many areas of technology, and through the eyes of a company leading the charge to these spaces. Always at the forefront of what's going on and what's changing the world.

    Cons

    It's a large company now, sometimes not as nimble as smaller competitors. Also promotion is very challenging.

    I have been working at Google full-time

    Pros

    + Larry wants us to keep the soul of a startup, even though we no longer are one. In some teams, like the ones I've been on, this has been possible - going from an idea to millions of users on a new product in < 2 years. Twice.
    + Product areas work on complex problems with awesome technical infrastructure set up already!
    + Smart peers, awesome project, if you get lucky or a particular team wants you.

    Cons

    + Not-as-smart peers if you are not lucky, and possibly less-exciting projects, too. In this case you need to pay your dues on that project for 12-18 months, before being able to transfer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enough with Google+ corrupting every single product in the name of Google+ success - I don't want a +Page for my YouTube account!
