    Intern for Platforms Team

    Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsWork is very challenging, culture is fantastic. There is always something going on and it's easy to get yourself involved in anything, even if it's outside your area of expertise.

    ConsBe prepared to spend huge amounts of time teaching yourself most of what you need to know.
    If you can get to know people early, this isn't so bad.

    Best internship!

    Platforms Project Manager Intern (Current Employee)
    Mountain View, CA

    ProsGoogle treats interns even better than full time employees. All of the employees all the way up to VP personally spend time with you and take your opinion.

    ConsThe hiring process at Google is really slow and not very transparant.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Incredible people.

    Software Engineering Intern (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsYou work with the smartest engineers in the world. You solve very difficult problems. You eat delicious food.

    ConsYou eat too much delicious food. On a more serious note, it may be a bit difficult to separate work from life because of how closely Google seems to integrate its people. You'll have to work very hard to have a life outside of your code.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe recruitment process sometimes seems a little messy.
