    I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All necessities for working were provided. The people who designed the infrastructure, seriously have productivity in mind, but also have kept in mind the needs of the people. Coffee was available at any part of the building through little snack bars. A game center, perfect for when you need a break, but also a gym which most people tend to not use but is there if you wish.

    Cons

    Not much space for improvement
