I have been working at Google full-time

Pros

Free food is amazing.Great atmosphere, people work together and help each other. No strict rules on hours. Many tech talks that you can attend freely to learn.

Cons

Google is too huge that you will only be able to see a small small part of the whole company.

    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.
