    I have been working at Google as an intern

    Pros

    Its a lot of fun, Google has excellent culture. One note about this role is that your day to day is heavily dependent on your project. You could be doing anything from data science to building pretty power points. You are the "utility player" in baseball terminology.

    Cons

    Despite having to be competent in a lot of fields you're not paid as much as a specialist in just one. Its the cost of being a generalist and having more varied work I guess.

    Advice to Management

    Google's management is awesome! Keep doing what you're doing. The main thing I'm concerned about are the recent leaks. Maybe make the order of cards in the dory unique to each viewer and store the hash so you can identify if someone leaked it.
