    I have been working at Inria full-time

    Pros

    I find the experience of working at Inria varies a lot depending on the team you join. If you're interested in working at Inria, I would advise to take a look at the list of projects the team you'd like to join has worked on. Also do some research on the person who's heading the team.

    Pros:
    + Combining research and development
    + You might have the chance to work in either English or French (or both)

    Cons

    + Salaries can be much lower than if you work in the private sector
    + Some teams are heavily research-oriented, and the projects you'd be working on will probably not be very practical (meaning that whatever skills you pick up might not be very relevant or useful to you if you'd like to land a job in the industry later on).
