    Pros

    For a prospective software engineer who is in college, I do not think there is a much better place to work. Unparalleled internal learning resources, very smart team members, very good pay, great perks.

    Cons

    Huge organization and you are rolling the dice as to whether you'll get an interesting project and a fun team.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for upper management.

    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The food! So many perks, too. They'll treat you like a princess, I'm telling you. It's amazing.

    Cons

    Honeslty, as long as you get along with your team, you'll be just fine at Google. The perks are to die for!

    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting people, great location. The on-site benefits are also good- make sure to take advantage of them if your job permits (which it might not)

    Cons

    Rent is rising and traffic is congested. Make sure you have enough saved up before moving here. You likely will be severely overqualified for your job

    Advice to Management

    why bother?

    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I found the company has a very open, positive culture. Everything is better with primary colors. The longer I spent there, the more assured I felt that Google was a force for good. It's really easy to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Cons

    The work you're assigned to might not be as interesting as you hoped, given that, it is, after all, Google.

    I worked at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. They have smart people there. If the work done really makes sense, it gets launched fairly quickly. Not too much pressure, I feel people there have good balance between work and family. The way things work out - large code base, automatic MR jobs, code reviews... are Google style, and they are awesome

    Cons

    I hear that the food is getting worse (mainly due to the size increase). You want to really stand out for a promotion - but they have many great people there, so this can be tricky.
