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

Pros

Leader in all web-based solutions like search, mail, etc. A very healthy work environment where you are surrounded by the brightest minds. Immense learning and positive energy.

Cons

None I can think of. The only downside (according to me, but can't be generalized) is Google is no longer is a startup, thus the expectations from a startup like breadth level learning and exposure might not be the same as an early startup.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Its awesome!

    Pros

    The people, the culture, and the constant innovation - makes coming to work everyday a fun routine.

    Cons

    We've grown too quickly, making it difficult to get things done as quickly as we were able to years ago. We've also focused on hiring elite students and MBA grads, who don't always have the street sense needed in a dynamic and changing sales organization.
