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

    Pros

    Working in a very chill workplace, you have plenty of free food provided, the manager is so easy going and beautiful

    Cons

    Its a routine job, you basically have to do the same tasks every single day which is kinda boring and not challenging enough

    Advice to Management

    The overall task was fun, but task should be more challenging since you just have to think the inside the given frame.

    Pros

    Great people, great environment and great food, everyone is very warm to help me with my work. Lots of great party after work.

    Cons

    Some extra thing such as "foreigner teacher's language class" is not available to Intern, but it is totally reasonably.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know, maybe a few more offices and a few more job positions at China, since China is a pretty big market.

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

    Pros

    1. Great opportunity to get in touch with the advanced framework and techniques
    2. Great place for learning new skills
    3. People are all nice

    Cons

    1. The work done at Google for an intern or a low level SDE seems too "normal" in some teams, i.e. it doesn't make much impact, and it seems that it can be done by anyone with basic programming skills.
    2. The work done at Google uses a lot of it's own framework (though it is very advanced), which is inaccessible outside. It makes it difficult to directly adapt the skills learned from Google to another place.

    Advice to Management

    The recruiting process is too slow, it seems there are all always reasons to postpone the HC(Hiring Committee) meetings.
