Former Employee - BOLD Intern in Mountain View, CA
Former Employee - BOLD Intern in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

Smart people, great perks (food, gyms, fun, free SWAG), overal good experience for a college kid looking to learn a bunch while having a great summer

Cons

From the summer, it seemed that business opportunities were a bit limited. Also, recruiting timelines took forever -- they were very slow about getting back to candidates.

    I have been working at Google full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free food, great hardware, cool campus, amazing benefits

    Cons

    Unless you are a SWE you should not work at Google. Lots of red tape and a complete lack of regard for dogfooder feedback

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Google promotes the wrong people over and over, while the good managers are not rewarded. very sad.
