I have been working at Google as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Amazing place to work! It has great benefits even for interns, and it's easy to make big impacts.

Cons

There aren't that many downsides. Google is just kind of big, but they are really good for a big company.

    I worked at Google full-time

    Pros

    The perks here are fantastic obviously. Great co-workers (for the most part) and the office is absolutely amazing.

    Cons

    The work you do has varying levels of impact and again, depending on your role, the chance that your work will change is minimal. You are essentially a cog in the big Google machine. Don't kid yourself into thinking that this is a startup-y kind of place, it's not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is doing a great job getting the most from it's employees, and keeping them happy. They're managing that many employees as best as possible.
