    Current Intern - Software Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA

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

    Pros

    Work 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.

    Cons

    Be 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.

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

    Pros

    Google 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.

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    You 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 ManagementAdvice

    The recruitment process sometimes seems a little messy.
