    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Google LA office is fantastic. The office is located in Venice just steps from the beach with some of the best facilities including a gym, dog park, roof deck, juice and coffee bar, and an amazing cafe. The office really grasps the Silicon Beach theme of the area

    Cons

    As Mountain View (HQ) continues to grow, you spend more time collaborating with others over video calls and IM, making it a more inefficient workflow

    I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I got to do what I love most and that is doing things that matter. Like other interns I was treated like a normal employee instead of some one to get coffee
    Great pay for interns
    Fantastic benefits

    Cons

    A lot of hard work and can be very stressful at times. Work can go past 40 hours a week which can take an effect on your work life balance
