I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

I got to do what I love most and that is doing things that matter. Like other interns I was treated like a normal employee instead of some one to get coffee
Great pay for interns
Fantastic benefits

Cons

A lot of hard work and can be very stressful at times. Work can go past 40 hours a week which can take an effect on your work life balance

    I worked at Google full-time

    Pros

    Free everything. Really, everything!!! Free laundry, free car for a day, free food, free massages, heck, they even throw in a free annual medical physical right on campus

    Cons

    Career progression is a key problem at Google. As the company is so young, so many of the initial employees are still working there, which leaves very little opportunity for new hires to climb the ladder
