Account Manager (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – December 20, 2013
Pros: perks, food, bonuses, gifts, flexible work schedules
Cons: limited work/life balance, expected to work on paid holidays, little advancement opportunities, very competitive culture
The culture is great for those who are young and without families. However, as you get older, work/life balance becomes increasingly important and doesn't exist here. Google treats employees very well. Since there's little room for advancement in the company, the culture is very competitive and it's not unheard of having colleagues throw you under the bus to get a one-up on promotions.

This was an excellent learnign experience and challenged me with technical responsibilities as well as mapping skills. Enjoyed working for the company and enjoyed my job task as I am now a very skilled experienced driver with lots of knowledge in the Cape Breton area.
