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

Pros

great increase in knowledge, more connections, GSOC is recognized and respected by many companies, increases your chances of getting a job.

Cons

It a program under google, not actual google, very less money, more and more work, everything from coding to documentation is in your hands, more research needed, no spoon feeding, from day 1 you are expected to do excellent work.
