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

    Pros

    For a big company, Google is remarkable well-run, agile, and responsive to employees. It's remarkable to me that even at Google's size the founders and leadership still get up in front of the company most weeks to answer employee questions.

    Cons

    It's a big company. There are some bad managers, bureaucracy, and sometimes-limited career choices that come from working at a big company.
