I have been working at Google as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

There are endless projects to choose from. If you do not feel challenged enough, there is no one stopping you from trying to find another project. The amenities are great. The food is fantastic. There is something different every day of the week. It is obvious that Google loves its employees. The culture is amazing too. Each employee does not mind helping the other out if they are stuck. I feel it is encouraged to reach out to others.

Cons

There is nothing wrong putting in more than 100%, but I feel sometimes no one has a life other than working. I do not blame the company for this because they actually encourage outside activities. But you still see it sometimes. The projects are just too awesome.

    "Google underpays when it comes to staffing and recruiting. They are way below the market. There is no work life balance."

    Pros

    Free food and snacks.

    Cons

    Very corporate now. The company is hierarchical and there is little to no access to management at the top. Long hours and no work life balance.
