    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job offers the rare opportunity to make big impact to life of millions of people. I work with extremely smart people and everyone is excited to come to work everyday. With all different kinds of project in Google, I can alway find something that interests me.

    Cons

    Google is a big company, so it's different from startup company. There will be process built that you need to follow and organization can be hierarchical. But it's nature of a big company. Still, there are some projects and teams in Google that act like startup.
