    Pros

    Really smart people, great benefits, amazing level of transparency and access, people -especially at the top are really committed to "getting it right"

    Cons

    Essentially Google has more than a few terrible middle managers. This is mostly because the really great people will often leave for school or more lucrative opportunities (because getting promotions can be very difficult) and often the people who stay are those who bide their time and are solid but not rock start performers. So your Google experience will depend a lot on who your direct manager is...
