Pros

-Great Benefits- food, gym, time off, good hours
-Lots of opportunities for interns to sit in on meetings, get contact with higher-ups
-Strong intern program in business and engineering
-Can be proud to work at Google, your friends and family will recognize your achievement and looks great on a resume
-Flexibility to work in different departments after a year or two with the company

Cons

-Actual day to day work not as exciting as it seems (lots of Excel, etc)
-Lots of gossip inside and outside the company that account managers are just "glorified telemarketers"
-Does not pay as well as finance internships though Google would like to compete with these sorts of internship programs at elite schools and campuses
-Does not seem like a place you stick around too long; a young environment with lots of movement and attrition.
-Recruiting process slow, flawed, and disorganized

Advice to Management

Improve recruiting and hiring process- it is the first part of the company to which potential employees are exposed!!

    Free food, lots of fun activities going on the campus.
    Really awesome tools internally, and also lots of benefits and fun.

    Cons

    Tight competitions, lots of engineers, too many projects going on.
    Lots of people and thus hard to get a voice up directly.

    Advice to Management

    Need to way to simplify lots of system in Google. Give more feedback to interns and promote host and intern interactions even after the internship ends.

    Pros

    Lots and lots of money thrown around to bring in celebrities and authors to keep you interested; the space is very clean

    Cons

    You are encouraged to work against your "teammates" in your fight to the top and talk bad about them; Building a sense of community is discouraged

    Advice to Management

    Stand behind your word: Don't be Evil. Lead by example. Evil is prevalent in the way you make us fight each other.
