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

Pros

Culture, work environment, pay, benefits -- everything was generally pretty great. As far as work places go, there's not much to complain about.

Cons

Intern projects aren't always completely fleshed out, so in the case of what I worked on, it was very scattered and not terribly cohesive. The stuff I worked on, as well as what my team did in general, might've ended up just getting scrapped.
