    I have been working at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, perks, and the people. Everyone around you is smart and tend to get along well with one another. The benefits are great and I only pay roughly 250/mo for a large family.

    Cons

    Stress from being over worked, long hours at times, some people don't work well with others, and meetings are aplenty.
