    I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Whip smart people; A meritocracy where smart people are listened to; They are willing to allocate amazing amount of resources to solve problems. Amazing benefits (food, technology, lectures and other extra activities). Great mix of interesting projects to work on.

    High expectation to achieve. Sometimes what they say the company's values are and what is actually applied don't completely match.
