    I worked at Google (less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of the coworkers are extremely smart. You are given lots of responsibility and you have the ability to work on new and exciting products.

    Cons

    Although it is not formalized, many people work long hours. Also, it is easy to feel overwhelmed or even out-of-place in the office. The standards are very high.

    I have been working at Google full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay with a ton of perks. Managers and very knowledgeable and want you to succeed. I have not met a single person who I have not liked.

    Cons

    Benefits are just okay, nothing spectacular. I feel like all I do is work and sleep. Sometimes feel like I am an impostor and I do not belong, as everyone makes sure to make it known that they are the "best" in their field.

    Promotions are tricky and require a lot of work.
    In some cases, does not manage low performers well or have a path for them out.
