Pros

Great benefits, smart people, good connections, looks great on resume, interesting projects, provides transportation if applicable, lots of resources and funding for projects

Cons

Hierarchical, lots of levels of management, not a design focused company, "the more features the better" perspective, some copying of other startup ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

focus on new products are are simple and innovative rather than stuffing every possible feature in each product.

    Great internship experience and responsibility, but it definitely depends on which team you're on

    Pros

    Very open communication from senior management all the way down to interns
    Vested interest in employees and personal development (GoogleEDU)
    Smartest / most creative people I've met

    Cons

    Slow recruiting and conversion process
    Such a large company that it's difficult to be organized (in terms of knowing how to get a certain piece of information or resource)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speed up the recruiting process because you lose valuable candidates when you wait too long to give decisions
