    Pros

    The food is good. The events can be fun. MBA Interns get a few special events to participate in.

    Cons

    Google Enterprise was not a good place to intern with. The company isn't exactly sure whether it wants to invest in enterprise because the sales capacity to close a deal is not ideal compared to advertising. The summer was pretty lonely because the Partner Programs team is all seated in London or Europe. My manager didn't seem to really know what he wanted out of the project I was working on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Better alignment between project and company goals
    - Don't put an intern on an island
    - Your pitch at MBA schools isn't the greatest - refine so it doesn't sound too arrogant

    I worked at Google full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's a good company, very good option for entry level student to learn. The sales team is very flexible, and got a lot of opporunity to work with customer

    Cons

    people work inefficient, since the company is too big, you will find you are very small. And there is some office politics there. make you feel depressed.
