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

    Pros

    Great perks, amazing products to work on, people that will make you grow, and rewarding work.

    Cons

    Google is a big company, you might not get a product you like, but even then it isn't the end of the world.

    There isn't a lot of pressure to move fast, if you want to set deadlines for yourself and your team, then it'll be hard because of how relaxed the workplace is.

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

    Pros

    Great culture, great food, getting the chance to work with super smart people and meaningful projects.

    Cons

    If you want to leave your mark in 3 marks you have to work super hard and long hours, and learn a ton of new tools that might not help you outside of Google that much.

    I worked at Google (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very flexible and relaxed workplace. As long you get your work done, there are no hard deadlines or people looking over your shoulder.

    Cons

    The pace is slower than at a smaller company, which makes sense. There is a rigorous code review process, etc., to maintain quality.
