Good Company, Nice people, Nice Cafe

Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

ProsEthics driven Company
As an intern, I didn't find any politics, everybody was nice and helpful
Good pay and nice cafe

ConsNot everybody is smart (some people are just going along because they have been at the company long)
Older workforce in general makes it less attractive for new interns and new hires

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more young people, and make changes fast (older workforce although good, is still resistant to change...just my impression though)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
