Good Post Grad Opportunity

Intern In Sales (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA (US)

Pros-Great Benefits- food, gym, time off, good hours
-Lots of opportunities for interns to sit in on meetings, get contact with higher-ups
-Strong intern program in business and engineering
-Can be proud to work at Google, your friends and family will recognize your achievement and looks great on a resume
-Flexibility to work in different departments after a year or two with the company

Cons-Actual day to day work not as exciting as it seems (lots of Excel, etc)
-Lots of gossip inside and outside the company that account managers are just "glorified telemarketers"
-Does not pay as well as finance internships though Google would like to compete with these sorts of internship programs at elite schools and campuses
-Does not seem like a place you stick around too long; a young environment with lots of movement and attrition.
-Recruiting process slow, flawed, and disorganized

Advice to Senior ManagementImprove recruiting and hiring process- it is the first part of the company to which potential employees are exposed!!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
