I worked at Google as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

It's Google. But seriously, tons of cool stuff going on, and the ability to impact lives at scale. The work is challenging.

Cons

It's easy to get caught up in the multitude of emails, especially when working on teams that cross timezones. Work-life balance is something that you have to specifically think about.

    Pros

    Experience in one of the largest and well know companies in the world in a great location and amongst similar minded people

    Cons

    the cost of living in the bay area and the long working hours make it tough to continue motivation and standards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    expected job hours and expected love for the brand is sometimes unrealistic

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart people. Good engineering practices. Free food onsite three times a day is an essential convenience factor. Lots of opportunities for travel. Interesting projects. Compensation and benefits very generous. Lots of cool perks, fun offsites etc.

    Cons

    Capricious high-level management direction, some projects don't make sense. Working across many time zones in distributed offices is challenging at times.
