    I have been working at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working at google is the culture. Everyone is friendly and amazingly smart which has inspired me to be innovative in the way I approach projects.

    Cons

    The only downside for working at Google is being surrounded by delicious free food which i always want to eat. I've gained some weight while working here but at least they have gyms to help you burn it off.
