I worked at Google as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

Completely depends on the organization you choose to participate with, but the majority are rigorous, challenging and rewarding. I was able to solve extremely difficult problems while being mentored by the best possible mentors, and I intend to participate in GSoC '13.

Cons

No interaction with Google, which is a great and bad thing. Could use a slightly stricter structure, but overall the program is what you make of it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expand the program to more students!

    Pros

    Smart, motivated people. Great tools and build systems. Great infrastructure for building web properties.

    Cons

    Bad mid-level management, without a great way to do career development. Discipline around people management relatively weak. Review model ok, not great.

    Pros

    Wonderful culture of society centered innovation, outstanding colleagues, belief in ideals beyond money. Technical excellence.

    Cons

    Can be chaotic, but often in a generative way. Its superb internal expertise can make it slightly arrogent in its views to the outside world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carry on :)
