I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Smart co-workers, unbeatable perks, innovation, and the feeling that the company will lead the technology world for a long time. Individual talent is usually respected and there is a great deal of transparency and open debate.

Cons

Increasing demand to achieve results is taking stress to uncomfortable levels, and some managers are having a hard time handling it. Difficult to move to a role out of your area of expertise.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to feedback about managers

    I have been working at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As everyone knows, Google has great perks. No surprises. This internship looks good on my resume and hopefully will lead to more opportunities.

    Cons

    I work long hours as an intern, but I wouldn't necessarily consider this a con since I am learning and it is great experience.
