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

Pros

Corporate culture is excellent, great benefits and perks

Cons

Very flat organization, limited opportunities outside engineering and sales. Sales office becoming more and more faceless -- not at all Googley. Long term client relationships sacrifices for short-term quota gains.
