I have been working at Google full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

The people, the culture, and the constant innovation - makes coming to work everyday a fun routine.

Cons

We've grown too quickly, making it difficult to get things done as quickly as we were able to years ago. We've also focused on hiring elite students and MBA grads, who don't always have the street sense needed in a dynamic and changing sales organization.

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

    Pros

    Completely depends on the organization you choose to participate with, but the majority are rigorous, challenging and rewarding. I was able to solve extremely difficult problems while being mentored by the best possible mentors, and I intend to participate in GSoC '13.

    Cons

    No interaction with Google, which is a great and bad thing. Could use a slightly stricter structure, but overall the program is what you make of it.

    Advice to Management

    Expand the program to more students!
