Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

I have been working at Google full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

People. I love to work with Googlers. I also feel comfortable to hang out with colleagues after work. This is because we are not just colleagues, but also partners and friends.

Cons

Too good to quit. Google is a good work place.
