    I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I really appreciate the nice food of Google's cafe. I also love the harmonious environment in Google, such as various activities like sports meeting, Take your child at work, etc. I meet so many friendly colleagues. Besides, I enjoy Google's flexible hours.

    Cons

    Salaries for summer interns in China are not high, especially for undergraduate students, compared to interns in U.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope there will be more cool teams in China.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Google

    Pros

    The office environment, the perks, the culture, the experience, the management and creative people everywhere

    Cons

    Salaries are relatively low, though I would say that the benefits more than make up for it. Not sure how many opportunities for promotion there are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up,

    I worked at Google as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Perfect team working environment, everyone is easy going and eager for a help. You know they are professional but they will never regard them like that. Ideas are highly respected, which is a must for such high-tech companies, since the innovations are all come from some impossible even crazy ideas.

    Cons

    This is the hardest question, I also told my manager like this way in my last day in Google

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If a team has a healthy base principles, then any operations inside such rules can be accepted. This is the key to some break through nowadays.
