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

Pros

The opportunity to work at Google would make people envy of you. And you get a lot of benefits there: free snacks, great view of Taipei city, flexible work hours. The tools and documents are well-established and you can get to real work smoothly. The pay is also pretty high. The people there are nice and very skillful, and most importantly, they enjoy their work.

Cons

Because there are relatively few interns, and each of them is assigned to a different team, it's harder to know others. This could reduce your sense of security. No special activities for interns. And as they expect you to be a very good developer, the guidance they give you was relatively few.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Google full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    in the edge of technology, super perks.

    Cons

    immature environment, sometimes lack of professionalism. kids in diapers that thing they know it all.

    Advice to Management

    put some order there, meritocracy needs to be the prime path for growth, not politics, back-stabbing or "friends of friends"

    learn to be global, Mountain View is not the center of the world or the pinnacle of talent pool.
