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

    Pros

    Google is very generous to its employees. Everyday it provides healthy and free food, drinks and snacks. There are lot's of recreation and events inside Google. Employee's satisfaction rate is also very high. Every week you can hear exciting news from Google. It is currently one of the top technology companies and its leaders are excited and enthusiastic about developing future techniques!

    Cons

    It may be a little heavy work in Google. People are working more than they exercise, especially young males. In my group, people usually work from 9:00am to 7:00pm everyday.
