You work with I highly educated, high achieving, highly motivated bunch of very cultured people.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Google full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart co-workers, unbeatable perks, innovation, and the feeling that the company will lead the technology world for a long time. Individual talent is usually respected and there is a great deal of transparency and open debate.

    Cons

    Increasing demand to achieve results is taking stress to uncomfortable levels, and some managers are having a hard time handling it. Difficult to move to a role out of your area of expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to feedback about managers

    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern (Graduate Student) in Mountain View, CA
    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern (Graduate Student) in Mountain View, CA

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

    Pros

    superb environment and facilities;
    great support to employees, such as workstation setup, ergonomic support, and experiment facilities training and support;
    various opportunities for life-long learning;
    good practices learned through the internship has a long-lasting effect on my further development;

    Cons

    All interns are talented but some might be too young to keep to socially acceptable conduct on and off the Google campus.

    This year, some of my fellow interns have made a mess in the company-provided accommodation (which is btw an awesome flat with other friendly residents), and our neighbors are quite upset about the misbehaviors by my fellow interns.

    I hope that Google can put more weight on overall personally in their candidate selection process.
