    Pros

    Google is an incredible company to work at. They really focus on having a manageable work-life balance for each and every one of their employees.

    Cons

    I think the only con would be that the office is still relatively small compared to other Google offices.

    Great experience for a BOLD Intern to do the exact work as a full time employee.

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

    Pros

    I was interning in Google New York office. The food there is really nice. The environment is also pretty friendly. You can also explore New York City with google employee benefits, like free/discounted museum tickets.

    Cons

    The space is a little bit small. And there is no gym in the building. The number of conference rooms is not enough that we have to go to a far-away room to hold the meeting.

    Advice to Management

    The management is very good, organized, and it is very convenient to talk to co-workers. The advise is to establish a gym in the building and have more small conference rooms.
