    Pros

    Benefits are great, the attitude is really relaxed. People are very willing to chat with you about anything and they really want to share their knowledge with people The lifestyle is amazing, with opportunities for improvement in all areas that you could imagine including health

    Cons

    There is the tendency to stay on campus really late so work life balance isn't great. I'd also say the feedback system was lacking and my specific manager was not always helpful when I was trying to get advice on how to improve.

    Pros

    For a prospective software engineer who is in college, I do not think there is a much better place to work. Unparalleled internal learning resources, very smart team members, very good pay, great perks.

    Cons

    Huge organization and you are rolling the dice as to whether you'll get an interesting project and a fun team.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for upper management.

    Pros

    The food! So many perks, too. They'll treat you like a princess, I'm telling you. It's amazing.

    Cons

    Honeslty, as long as you get along with your team, you'll be just fine at Google. The perks are to die for!

    Pros

    The whole hierarchy is very flat which is really great as you can talk to anybody with whom you have a topic to talk about. There are many very interesting people in the office.

    Cons

    There is a lot of internal technology within the company. This is great to do work inside but means than many skills are not transferable.

    Pros

    Great program which allows you to experience the work of fulltime employees. Half of your time you will work on a client portfolio and the other half is Project Management.

    Cons

    I couldn't find any cons. I really enjoyed it and would do it again. The fact that you do slightly the same job as fulltime employees fosters integration in the teams
