I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

You get to work with some of the greatest people in the software industry. It was amazing place to network. Google had an excellent culture that they worked hard to build and I hope they never lose.

Cons

Google has a hard time delegating responsibility to remote offices. Projects started abroad would consistently be pulled into Mountain View as soon as they showed signs of success. This did not work well for remote employees who were left marginalised and unrewarded for their efforts.
