Former Employee - BOLD Intern in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

Incredibly internal transparency, great compensation, and some of the smartest and most engaging people in the world. Was encouraged to pursue my passion with an extra '20%' project, and was given work that really matters.

Cons

Very flat corporate structure. This means a lot of movement laterally, but can sense some frustration with employees for moving up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to explore + innovate, and keep culture of intellectual enthusiasm.
