Former Intern - Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA
Former Intern - Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

There's a lot of free food around. There's also a gym and bikes around campus to commute to the other buildings.

Cons

There aren't a lot of cons, but moving up in the company seems difficult due to its sheer size. It's still great though

Advice to Management

Keep the culture.
