Great company to work at

Software Engineering Intern (Current Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I have been working at Google

ProsGreat pay, work whenever convenient for you. The free food is simply amazing. Lots of perks like massages, micro kitchens, tech talks. The tech stops and hardware depots are great assets, you can go pick up headphones or a new keyboard and mouse for office use. The work place is very open, interaction with other employees is very easy. It is filled with very intelligent and fun people. The company is very open, you can ask questions directly to the CEO or Founders during TGIF question and answer sessions. Interns don't get nearly as much perks and benefits as full time employees, but that's expected. Google probably has one of the highest pays for interns. It is definitely one of the best places to work at.

ConsPromotions don't seem to happen too often due to the fact that there is very short chain of command and little bureaucracy.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more incentive and encourage to do longer intern terms so they are not forced to work on small isolated projects most of time with little visibility to the rest of the engineers on the team.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Those of us with a family seem to be at… Advice to Senior Management: Senior management likes to talk about how open the company is with its employees. In some ways, it is. But increasingly it feels like management… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
