I have been with the company for 2 years and it still feels like the first day. People are very smart and everyone is willing to help and collaborate. They trust you to do the right thing and you can normally choose what and how to work on projects, without anyone looking over your shoulder but offering guidance and a lot of resources if needed. Work hours are whatever I see fit and I have been provided with everything to equip my WFH environment. The offices are amazing and it's the first time I look forward to going there. The benefits and perks are great, you are actually encourage to take leaves, PTO and enjoy extra days off. Once you have a certain tenure, be prepared to deliver or be left behind. This is a meritocracy and just sitting around doing nothing will get out of the door.The interview process was demanding but recruiters help you get prepared. Be ready to code on a whiteboard and have your data structure knowledge and Big O memories refreshed.
Pros
Unlimited leraning opportunities, smartest colleagues, offices, free food, perks, compensation, bonus, stocks, great work environment
Cons
The interview is tough, but worth it

Every thing was spectacular at Google. I have learnt numerous new technical skills from google technical personnel or engineers. I was fresh graduate at that from Conestoga.

Every work day was different, it required to adapt to new regulations quickly but it was very stimulating and exciting. Google has very diverse culture and treats everyone with respect. I had an opportunity to work with people from all over the world like Brazil, Russia, Germany, France, Israel, Spain.

Lots smart college to work with and learn. But internal competition is high as well, when everyone is smart, it will be a fun situation. It's a good place to learn and improve.

good working experience but less salary as expected, management could be done better and work culture is very flexible and for timing perspective, they are very strict.

Google seems to mostly hire "Temporary Vendors and Contractors". They use temp agencies as their HR department. My manager worked hard to only give information out that was absolutely necessary, and mostly seemed to be afraid someone she was managing would take her job.

Great pay, great people. This company will give you the highest level of money and benefit. You don't need to pay anything for full coverage. 100% of dental, 100% of drug and 100% of everything within limitation. Nice and knowledgable coworkers. You can really learn a lot from them.

As a sales contractor for Google your treated as a 2nd class citizen. Work directly for Google or don't work for them at all. They treat internal employees very well however.

An at home job where you can get paid to create your own income based on the success of your videos and ad revenue. I can create my own content and access the information with the community. A great experience to get started in film and video production. A great place for your message to be heard world wide.

Google shouldn't participate in project Dragonfly. It is against my moral boundaries to build a search engine for a dictatorship like China. Google please do better.
