    - Intrapreneurial
    - Ability to make a terrific impact in a short amount of time
    - Exposure to one of the best technologies
    - Treated fairly well and almost equal as employees

    Cons

    - Sometimes you may have to do projects that are not necessarily innovative or make the best use of your skills
    - Access to data that is needed for your job is hard to come by. It is always a constant struggle to convince the right folks to grant you access

    Pros

    Prestigious place to work in as an intern. Great opportunity to join a real project and actually launch your own code to millions of people around the world. Relaxed atmosphere and plenty of food.

    Cons

    The intern-ship programme could be a bit more organised. Also it takes ages for Google HR to react to anything esp. the recruiting process takes too long.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more organised and focused. Know what you want to achieve because you have a lot of really gifted people getting upset because you suddenly change your decision about their project.

  6. Overall, an enjoyable place to spend the summer

    As an intern, the project I was assigned differed from what I thought I had agreed to before I was hired.

  7. Good internship experience that helps me learned a lot!

    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!
