Amazing internship opportunity

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

ProsYou're going to learn a lot about developing high-quality code at Google, guaranteed. Lots of experts around to help you, really great coworkers, world-famous benefits, and the expectation that you'll produce real code during your internship. I highly identify with their values and core mission, and most people there feel the same way. They also paid me a lot for an inexperienced intern.

ConsIt can feel slightly bureaucratic due to its size, but really not to a huge extent. I had maybe one 15-minute meeting per week, a couple HR things to deal with here and there, and that's it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
