    I have been working at Google as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome place to work for. Awesome people and great culture. Food was a way lot better than college mess food.

    Cons

    After the internship you take a bit of time to settle for the college mess food. To be serious, none con that I noticed.

    I worked at Google part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Has the best employee environment and gives the best facilities to them. A family like atmosphere inside company without bounds makes you enjoy your work.

    Cons

    It actually has none as far as I could find. You name anything and Google had already thought of it and worked upon it.

    Former Employee - Intern in Gurgaon, Haryana

    I worked at Google as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    An opportunity that broadened my horizons and helped gain insight into the best practices with a leading company. The focus on good quality work and ethics surpassed everything else. Managers and seniors at every level were approachable and gave constant feedback to achieve significant improvements in a very short span of time.

    Cons

    Was spoilt with the perks from the job and the experience increased my overall expectations from any future employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please create more opportunities to have Interns on board so that the awareness and enthusiam is created amongst high performing students to consider prospects with Google.

    I worked at Google as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great environment, great infrastructure, good pay, good hours, good benefits, really take care of their employees. I had a really good experience working there since my work was very prevalent and easy to show to people. Millions of users used my project so even as an intern I really felt as if I was making an impact.

    Cons

    Hard to grow to a higher position, everyone is extremely qualified

    Google SDev Intern

    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern
    Former Employee - Software Engineer Intern

    I worked at Google as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Google on the inside is pretty much exactly what it looks like from the outside, no surprises, fun internship, lots of opportunity to continue with them once your internship is up.

    Cons

    I enjoyed my summer there, although I would recommend if you have a choice work at one of the larger offices, I worked at a smaller office and didn't feel like I got the whole Google experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an intern I didn't really deal with management.

    I have been working at Google as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I really appreciate the nice food of Google's cafe. I also love the harmonious environment in Google, such as various activities like sports meeting, Take your child at work, etc. I meet so many friendly colleagues. Besides, I enjoy Google's flexible hours.

    Cons

    Salaries for summer interns in China are not high, especially for undergraduate students, compared to interns in U.S.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hope there will be more cool teams in China.
