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

    Pros

    Obvious pros, free food, massages, large network, TGIF

    Cons

    Large company so easy to get lost, or, as an entry level employee, work on something that someone else is already working on.

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

    Pros

    I got to do what I love most and that is doing things that matter. Like other interns I was treated like a normal employee instead of some one to get coffee
    Great pay for interns
    Fantastic benefits

    Cons

    A lot of hard work and can be very stressful at times. Work can go past 40 hours a week which can take an effect on your work life balance

    I worked at Google as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good salary. They paid for the accommodation during the whole internship. I learned a lot from the engineers and made a lot of networking.

    Cons

    If you end up starting your internship close in time the Google IO or the performance reviews you'll be by yourself for a couple of weeks. Everything moves around Mountain View you pretty much have to work at the time zone even if you are in Europe of Asia.

    I worked at Google as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Smart employees
    - Great learning experience
    - Cool perks (free tasty food, gym, bikes, etc.)
    - Interesting problems to solve

    Cons

    There were not many cons to my internship experience at Google. However, I could see how Google is not the best place to be for certain types. For example, even though Google tries to keep up the fast-paced, creative environment, it has become somewhat bureaucratic.
