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

Pros

Technical challenges,
Cool company,
Cool products,
The "start-up" chaos is good if all you want to do is to sit in a corner and be programming,
Looks really good on your resume

Cons

My manager was really bad,
The "start-up" chaos, but still a lot of internal bureaucracy, like hiring committees
A lot of socially-awkward-penguin people,
Everyone is always late to meetings,
A lot of people don't have a personal life outside Google,
If you want personal development, grow as a leader, talk non-nerdy stuff, this is not the right place

    Pros

    Free Food, Young People, Laid back atmosphere, Don't feel like you are being micromanaged.

    Cons

    My job had a lot of turnover. They just hire 1 year contractors and never re-up them. Would have loved to stay.
