    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

    Pros

    Interesting problems to solve. Nice amenities and work environment.

    Cons

    Depending on the project you work on, your work, while challenging, can feel very meaningless in the grand scheme of things. The company is a bit scatter brained, which can lead to great things, but also neglected projects.

    Former Employee - Software Engineering Intern  in  Taipei (Taiwan)

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

    Pros

    The opportunity to work at Google would make people envy of you. And you get a lot of benefits there: free snacks, great view of Taipei city, flexible work hours. The tools and documents are well-established and you can get to real work smoothly. The pay is also pretty high. The people there are nice and very skillful, and most importantly, they enjoy their work.

    Cons

    Because there are relatively few interns, and each of them is assigned to a different team, it's harder to know others. This could reduce your sense of security. No special activities for interns. And as they expect you to be a very good developer, the guidance they give you was relatively few.
