    I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great perks and benefits.
    Peers can start to become like family when a bond is formed.
    International travel opportunity.
    Hands on experience with new products and technology.

    Cons

    Too many overqualified employees are considered during performance reviews, making promotion difficult.
    Entry level pay is subpar compared to other huge technology companies.
    Management may be hard to budge when new ideas are presented.

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting and retaining diverse talent is still lacking and should be a higher priority.
    Ask more behavioral questions during interviews and try not to dwell on trivial knowledge that will rarely be used in the role that is being applied for.

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

    Pros

    Challenging everyday work.
    Opportunities for professional growth (really, lots of tech talks, people like Sanjay Ghemawat, Rop Pike, etc that you can talk every day in the hallway, invited guests (like Joel Spolsky, Guido van Rossum)), tons of great trainings, interesting projects).
    Awesome perks.
    Again, great people working with you.
    Again, people who are really enthusiastic about work they are doing (e.g. we have weekly whisky meetings where we share and discuss work challenges, news and achievements while having glass of good whisky) We organize white paper read clubs and discussions, and so forth.
    Sergey and Larry entertaining you every Thursday discussing what's happening in the company and answering your questions.
    20% projects (they are not dead, you can always come up with creative and useful stuff and people welcome it).
    Strong nerdy/engineering culture.

    Cons

    Google is a big company now. It's not a startup and you won't be making $millions (but you will be comfortable).
    Sometimes management have product decisions that even most of Googlers do not approve.
