    I worked at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    #1 work with the most talented, driven, amazing, and nice people who will make you better
    #2 work on really interesting products that benefit millions of people
    #3 egalitarian culture, meritocracy; the value of the idea is what matters, not the status of the person promoting it
    #4 salary, benefits, perks pretty impossible to beat

    Cons

    #1 performance matters, you will have to work hard, work smart, and grow
    #2 it can be very demanding and ask a lot of you, require long hours sometimes
