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

Pros

Ownership of projects, great communication with teams across the company, friendly, diverse and fun people. You feel like contributing to shaping tomorrow's world.

Cons

You have to like technology. Networking with other Googlers is key to self-development (which is not exactly a cons..., you just need to know it). Finding good career opportunities is up to you.

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

    Pros

    Atmosphere: the work atmosphere is great, you have fun with your colleagues and it's up to you to build the right atmosphere in your team. Learning: you can learn a lot, especially about the products (AdWords, Analytics, YouTube) and develop your soft skills like time management, productivity, wok under stress. Responsibility: you can take several roles aside from your core job.

    Cons

    Stressful: everything is about metrics, how much you do, how well you do it. You are compared to your teammates when it comes to performance review and you are told if you performed better than your team, average or below the rest of your team. The core job is repetitive and if you want to work on other roles you mostly have to do it extra hours, the teams are often stretched and you'll be on the phone 6-7 hours a day.
