    I worked at Google for 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.
