    I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic colleagues. Great experience. Smartest folks to be with. We had cool problems to solve and it was fun working with all the folks.

    Cons

    Nothing in particular. The experience was awesome. Sometimes collaboration with so many teams was challenging especially across time zones, but on the whole great experience

    I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Openness, food and other perks, colleagues.

    Learning and Work: You can learn a lot at Google, you get access to lot of materials on some of the best technologies and you get to work on things that impact billions of people.

    Work-life balance and fun: You can have well balanced life and have fun utilising the perks that you get as a Googler. Some of the thins that you do other than work are team offsets, playing in game tournaments, travelling to attending conferences and for work to other country offices/places, Christmas/New Year gifts (like Latest phone, tablet, smart watch, ...) from Google that you get almost every year.

    Cons

    Though it is one of the best places to work, management of some of the teams in India is not to the level of rest of the teams at Google. Some corporate politics happen in these teams. But even then, working in these teams is better than working in most other companies.
