    Pros

    Fantastic culture - my team was extremely welcoming. I was interning in Moutain View, which has a beautiful office and the weather was fantastic.

    Cons

    It's a very big company and it doesn't always feel like you're contributing a lot. They also tend not to promote from within. If you're interning in MTV, the taxes can be pretty brutal.

    Pros

    Cool projects to work on and lots of great perks for the employees. A very empowered culture where people want you to take chances.

    Cons

    If you are a technical person or have a very unique skill great place to be but if you are a support function of any sort don't expect to get too much in the way of recognition.

    Advice to Management

    As big as the company has gotten keeping the original culture of Google gets harder and harder but if you don't try to keep it, the place will get filled with entitlement and not innovation.

    Pros

    Everyone works together to achieve big and have fun while doing it. The perks are unbelievable (food, massage, gyms, discounts, etc) but the best part is being surrounded by such amazing talent. It's truly inspiring.

    Cons

    If you want to excel (no one forces you to) you have to put in long hours and go beyond expectations, helping other team members out and participating in projects outside of your team. It can get tough to balance work and play when you're working this hard, but really... Who gets a job at Google to be lazy?
