I have been working at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Work is very challenging, culture is fantastic. There is always something going on and it's easy to get yourself involved in anything, even if it's outside your area of expertise.

Cons

Be prepared to spend huge amounts of time teaching yourself most of what you need to know.
If you can get to know people early, this isn't so bad.

    I have been working at Google full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I doubt there is a company that treats any of their employees as well as Google does. As an employee you really feel like the company shares wealth among all their employees. The work you do here is high impact and they're very open to letting you figure out new ways to do things.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast that it is starting to show signs of a more corporate environment that is bridled by bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share the wealth among your employees.
