"Awesome internship"

Former Intern - Software Engineering Intern in Mountain View, CA
Former Intern - Software Engineering Intern in Mountain View, CA

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

Pros

You'll work with very talented and motivated people, lots of perks, state-of-the-art infrastructure. Having the opportunity to take a look at all the wonderful stuff they've developed and taking part in the creation of new tools and products is an amazing experience, especially if you're still in college.

Cons

I couldn't say. The internship can be quite demanding, but it really depends on your projects, your skills and how many weeks you're staying. I wouldn't say it's a bad thing either, but I'd be prepared to be quite busy for the duration of the internship.

    I worked at Google full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great perks and benefits.
    Peers can start to become like family when a bond is formed.
    International travel opportunity.
    Hands on experience with new products and technology.

    Cons

    Too many overqualified employees are considered during performance reviews, making promotion difficult.
    Entry level pay is subpar compared to other huge technology companies.
    Management may be hard to budge when new ideas are presented.

    Advice to Management

    Recruiting and retaining diverse talent is still lacking and should be a higher priority.
    Ask more behavioral questions during interviews and try not to dwell on trivial knowledge that will rarely be used in the role that is being applied for.
