    I have been working at Google as an intern (less than an 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.

    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 (less than an 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 (less than an year)

    Pros

    I found the company has a very open, positive culture. Everything is better with primary colors. The longer I spent there, the more assured I felt that Google was a force for good. It's really easy to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Cons

    The work you're assigned to might not be as interesting as you hoped, given that, it is, after all, Google.
