I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Free food, snacks, drinks, perks, great environment. Working with so many smart talents around you. Building products that will impact lives of millions people.

Cons

- Google has become a big company so you won't get a feeling of startup anymore.
- you'll be spoiled while working at Google and you will miss perks, etc. if you move somewhere else.

    I worked at Google full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Compensation and Benefits. Most peers were a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Flexibility and openness have taken a nose dive as the company became larger and more compartmentalized.

    No one wants you to work on "the world's most interesting problems" no matter what their employment ads say.

    20% time has become a myth. No one wants you working on their projects, or on your own.

    Advice to Management

    Stop dividing the company, hiding behind locked doors, and touting opportunities which no longer exist
