    I worked at Google

    Pros

    Google provides incredible perks that really boost morale. All of the social events allow employees to meet colleagues from other areas, which truly fosters innovation. I worked with very smart people who are driven, which pushed me to pursue more of my goals.

    Cons

    The amazing benefits and incredibly stimulating work environment makes it difficult to leave.

    Pros

    I got to do what I love most and that is doing things that matter. Like other interns I was treated like a normal employee instead of some one to get coffee
    Great pay for interns
    Fantastic benefits

    Cons

    A lot of hard work and can be very stressful at times. Work can go past 40 hours a week which can take an effect on your work life balance
