Fantastic engineers, one-of-a-kind opportunities
CA (Former Employee), Software EngineerNovember 5, 2011
Pros: flexible hours, great engineering culture, generous benefits, brightly painted offices
Cons: long hours, distributed teams, easy to get lost, *way* too much email
For engineers, Google is a company unlike any other. The caliber of the people there is super-high, the resources and data available are unmatched, and the problems are challenging and meaningful. While I was there, I felt like a valued employee by my team and the company as a whole. The culture of openness was impressive and changed my views on how – more... a company should be run.

That said, it's not for everyone and the Google of today is not the same as the early 2000's. It has "grown up" and lost a lot of the playfulness and deliberate wanderlust that made the company and the brand so powerful and successful. It will continue to be an important place with great opportunities for learning and growth, but those looking for the impact and ownership of a startup should look elsewhere. – less

Great place to work if all you need is free meals
Support Team Lead (Former Employee), Mountain View, CAJuly 29, 2014
Pros: free meals
Cons: extremely compartmentalized business units, high turnover, unclear management structure, lack of focus or goals, low salary, not receptive to feedback or suggestions
Google's management structure consists of a caste of managers whom freely rotate from project to project irrespective of their past performance or experience. One of the 6 managers I had while I worked there (a period of 5 months) told us that 5/6 of his previous projects had been failures. That's fine for him, but it's likely that all his employees – more... in that department were laid off. It's also likely that they were low-paid contractors. I discovered that a large number of workers at Google were contractors being paid in the $10-14 per hour range. Many of these contractors were also denied the famous free meals, bus service, and facilities of Google. And they were reprimanded for riding the Google bikes, which are also famous for having a 50% theft rate, yet contractors couldn't use them...

The bottom line is, Google makes it's money off of marketing, and cares little for it's employees, contractors, or customers, beyond their ability to generate revenue. Anyone who says otherwise is probably blinded by the bright colors and slightly-above-standard perks. – less
