    Google was a great place to work, but at the end of the day it was just a job.

    Pros

    Great pay, amazing benefits, great perks, and stock options.

    Cons

    No work life balance even though they talk about it a lot. 85% of my team were single, and they worked 70+ hours a week. If you wanted to put out the same amount of work, and meet the expectations of your manager you had to do the same.

    Pros

    Benefits, perks, and the people. Everyone around you is smart and tend to get along well with one another. The benefits are great and I only pay roughly 250/mo for a large family.

    Cons

    Stress from being over worked, long hours at times, some people don't work well with others, and meetings are aplenty.
