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

Pros

Leader in all web-based solutions like search, mail, etc. A very healthy work environment where you are surrounded by the brightest minds. Immense learning and positive energy.

Cons

None I can think of. The only downside (according to me, but can't be generalized) is Google is no longer is a startup, thus the expectations from a startup like breadth level learning and exposure might not be the same as an early startup.

Advice to Management

Its awesome!

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

    Pros

    Google runs smoothly. Engineers don't have to worry about management getting in the way. The company is moving in a good direction and is staying innovative. The people there really care about making a good product and doing good by their users.

    Cons

    It was hard for me to attain a work/life balance. Google is very family friendly, so people do work reasonable hours, but a lot of people, including me, worked much longer hours.
