    Pros

    Great technology and processes that are optimized to let you succeed. Tons to learn. Smart people who are generally friendly. Fair amount of autonomy to shape your own destiny.

    Cons

    You are evaluated on impact, but with the size of Google it is increasingly difficult to make a mark and get the recognition needed to advance. Increased visibility means increased product risk and a higher bar for new releases, making it difficult to get something to market without enlisting executive help to overcome risk aversion (bureaucratic obstacles).
