Pros

The opportunity to work at Google would make people envy of you. And you get a lot of benefits there: free snacks, great view of Taipei city, flexible work hours. The tools and documents are well-established and you can get to real work smoothly. The pay is also pretty high. The people there are nice and very skillful, and most importantly, they enjoy their work.

Cons

Because there are relatively few interns, and each of them is assigned to a different team, it's harder to know others. This could reduce your sense of security. No special activities for interns. And as they expect you to be a very good developer, the guidance they give you was relatively few.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits and amazing physical facilities. Lots of openness once you get on the inside and senior management has a fantastic vision for the company that motivates from top to bottom.

    Cons

    Internal mobility can be hard but the options out there are fantastic. Much will hinge on how well Google handles growing pains in the coming few years.

    Advice to Management

    Googles works so hard and spends so much money to hire the best people for the job as possible. Lets trust those smart and talented employees to do the right thing rather than to guide them all the same way.
