I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

People, environment, and pay/perks are great. They really spoil you. Projects are challenging so you really get to grow your skills daily. Coworkers are the smartest, funniest, and most conscientious I have ever worked with.

Cons

Pace can be relentless. Not a great place to move up the ladder because there is so much competition. Promotions to management seem pretty political. Your manager may not have any interpersonal and leadership abilities. If that happens, try to move on quickly.

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

    Pros

    Great environment, really smart people, really interesting projects, good company goals/objectives.

    Cons

    Of course, since Google has grown so much, it's harder to get things done/it takes a really long to push code or get things out there.

    Advice to Management

    Most Googlers live in a bubble and have no real grasp on what is going on outside their group. Everything is so last minute here it is amazing to see how little planning is actually done here.
