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

Pros

- Free good food and great compensation.
- Being able to just leave work, play an hour of volleyball (Halo, Table tennis, whatever floats your boat) and continue working.
- Respect from employers even though they can be twenty years older than you.
- Company decisions are transparent even to the interns.
- Everyone being smart and still respecting an opinion you give.

Cons

The work you are doing might not be really interesting, but if you can afford to have a long host matching process, you can find the project most fitting to you.

    Pros

    Bring innovation to the table

    Cons

    They've become puppets of the corporate culture of the bottom line mentality at cost to their clients. All they do now is fight legal battles and gouge clients budgets. Sad. Lots of turnover there. If you don't do what they want-they let you go-even if it's unethical.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's too late to save these guys-they've been swallowed up by the greed.
