Pros

Great place to work if you are interested in technology and prefer to work on products/projects that have a big impact on the world. Smart people. Good leadership development programs for recognized talent.

Cons

Permission based, needs multiple layers of approvals for decisions. Large, so you could get lost if you don't have the right mentors, managers and colleagues. Less perks.
