    I worked at Google full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The great people, atmosphere, benefits (free food and gym) were the best part of Google. The culture is very 'Googley': nice and friendly. Helping where possible.

    Cons

    The fulltime job (50%) was not challenging and repetitive. The projects (50%) on contrary were amazing! Another con is the location Dublin. Don't go to Dublin for the weather.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less external managers, more internal. Let the managers be involved with their team instead of with their higher management (by using related KPI's).

    Excellent internship program, I would have nothing to advise

    Pros

    - best work culture ever - interesting and stimulating people left and right - access to infinite resources - everyone at the company accessible - of course, all the free perks

    Cons

    - know exactly what role you are changing. If you think you will be designing/marketing Google glass 2.0 or the driver-less car, think again

    I worked at Google for less than a year

    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

    I have been working at Google for less than a year

    Pros

    The final interview was more friendly and given to provide the applicant a chance to ask questions about the company. Overall, it seemed like work culture was very collegial and friendly.

    Cons

    There were three interviewers, and each interview lasted 45 minutes. Each of the interviews seemed to focus on slightly different areas: the first interview focused on understanding of technology and included a puzzle.

    Advice to Management

    The second interview asked many scenario-type questions, such as "What would you do in XYZ situation?" and "How would you respond to XYZ in a work setting".
