    Pros

    great products and benefits, some teams are awesome

    Cons

    too big, very specific to teams - make sure you join a good team with a good manager, there are a lot of bad managers there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you can get rid of 10-20% of people at any time and the company would not miss a heart beat..do it.
    institute a 10% firing rule every year

    Current Employee - Software Engineering Intern in Boston, MA

    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.
