A great place for software engineers, but not researchers

Intern (Current Employee) Mountain View, CA

ProsTotal compensation is very good. Benefits are good, too. Free food, drinks, and stuff. Very flexible work environment. Flat hierarchy of management. Huge codebases to start with. Good for software engineers to develop skills. Good to put on resume.

ConsWork pressure is big. The company likes code better than research ideas. Research progress is slow due to the constraints on the tools.

Advice to Senior ManagementGoogle research can be more dedicated on advancing the state-of-the-art to compete with other industrial research labs such as Microsoft Research and IBM T.J. Watson Research Center.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
