    I worked at Google full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    culture, benefits, perks, facilities, opportunity

    Cons

    Not a typical corporate set up so you will face trouble dealing with work culture at other places if you ever decide to move out. This also leads to stagnation at some point in cases where direction is a little unclear

    I worked at Google part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The Google Network has some cool features that should concern its competition. For starters, it can disclose the sites you run ads on and report performance on a site-by-site basis. This enables you to focus buys on those sites (inventory allowing). An inability to see where your ads appear has always been a barrier for some advertisers.

    Cons

    One drawback is there are no inventory level guarantees. This is true of any network, but with Google it can get even more difficult as you can't reserve inventory (expensive home page buyouts aside). A bidder can bump you out of certain placements by bidding higher and raising his maximum CPM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Like any other online marketer, I have a certain amount of anxiety about Google getting into new areas and potentially dominating every facet of online marketing. It can be a little scary. No one wants to be beholden to one organization. But for firms like mine, which tightly integrate search and online media, Google Network's potential is pretty great. Since we already manage our clients' AdWords accounts, we're the most likely candidate to manage all campaigns running through Google's platform.

    Pros

    Awesome place to work for. Awesome people and great culture. Food was a way lot better than college mess food.

    After the internship you take a bit of time to settle for the college mess food. To be serious, none con that I noticed.
