Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Mountain View, CA

Pros

Everyone's very bright and hardworking, but everyone knows this already. More important, the Google culture is one of openness. Many docs are publicly visible, so you can learn about other projects in the company, and people enjoy talking about what they're working on.

Cons

This varies significantly by location, but some workspaces are very tightly crammed, with people sitting side-by-side in long tables. This is a distracting and unpleasant work environment. It's like being in an industrial chicken coop. Engineers need quiet!

    Pros

    The perks and environment of the company are well known, but the resources for professional growth are sometimes overlooked. There is no better company in tech or the Valley to accelerate your career and grow personally or professionally.

    Cons

    Based on the team that you are on, it may be difficult to see the impact that you are having on the billions that use Google. That motivation has to come from yourself.
