Great perks, great projects, great food, long hours if you're not careful.

Software Development Intern (Former Employee)
Mountain View, CA

I worked at Google

ProsThere's a ton of engineering resources, and everything is pretty open and transparent within the company. Lots of on the job perks, and there are really cool projects all over the company to spend time on.

ConsThere is a culture of working long hours there, and 20% time is pretty much a myth now. If anything, it's 120% time. As well, the San Francisco to Mountain View commute is a little grating after a while.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs an intern, I didn't really interact with senior management a whole lot, so I couldn't really say.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
