    I have been working at Google for less than a year

    Pros

    - A lot of nice bonuses for employees; - Good salary; - Adequate and friendly people; - Some of my programming tasks at work and the project itself, I'm working in, are interesting; - Many opportunities for learning and improving your skills in variety of fields; - It's overall significantly better than my previous works. :)

    Cons

    - It takes a lot of time to get comfortable with company's internal tools and resources, cause there are too many of them; - Both the company and its code base is too big and have too complicated structure, which makes work more complicated than in small company in many aspects; - Some of my programming tasks at work are challenging and hard by their nature; - I.e. I really need to work :(
