    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, good environment for research, exciting problems, good work-life balance

    Cons

    Bureaucracy at times but that's expected for a company of Google's size. Sometimes hard to ship code to product, especially as an intern.

    Advice to Management

    Try to reduce amt of bureaucracy.

    I worked at Google as an intern

    Pros

    Great culture, collaborative members at my summer team.

    Cons

    It gets really competitive but there's always someone at the firm that is willing to mentor you. You just need to be proactive in finding one.

    Advice to Management

    Continue fostering the development of your employees!

    Great benefits and pay. Food was great and employees were genrally very nice and approachable.
