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

    Pros

    You work with very talented people. Everyone at Google shares the "do no harm" value, everyone works really hard but know how to have fun. It's a performance driven company, where your skills matter more than your experience.

    Cons

    None, as it's all relative and really depends on how you decide to take things.

    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Santa Monica, CA (US)

    I worked at Google (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only place I've ever worked where I've been criticized for not thinking big enough. Really smart people. A great place to incubate ideas. You are constantly pushed. I worked and launched a wide variety of products. Google is also big enough that it's difficult to get bored - there are always interesting projects to get involved with.

    Cons

    Given that there are so many smart people, there is some intellectual elitism. Occasionally, you will find yourself in an incredibly long email thread where people are debating just to debate. Constant pace can burn people out.
