How googles Free food program help me in my hardest times

I've worked in this company for around 7 years now and I have enjoyed my time here so far. Not only are the staff very nice, but the job also pays well too. One thing that really helped me in this company was the food and snack program. When I graduated from college and just got into the company I was struggling with money. I was unable to afford a plate to eat but after getting into the company I was able to eat due to the free lunches and snacks provided, and keep myself energized which enhanced my working ability. This was really helpful as I was able to get myself back on my feet. Going into my 8th year I now have a house and am able to support myself.

Pros

Free Lunches And Snacks, great work environment

Cons

No cons

Fun place to work

Expectations are high, but management is supportive and most work is a collaborative effort. Coworkers are great due to the intensive interview/screening process.

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Loved this job, the team was great to work with and I enjoyed basically being my own boss.

Absolutely loved working with Google. They were friendly and helpful but also demand a lot from their employees. It was amazing working with them and I would love another job with Google.

Pros

Basically your own boss. Make your own hours. Work alone (safer during pandemic)

Cons

Work alone, pay could have been higher

Overall rate 3/10

Overall rate 3/10....Try to mold and confuse new employees with too much unreasonable expectations and not enough proper training or support....It's quite misleading before joining the company and then false after doing so.... Pretty unfair a d bad and no empathy or sympathy whatsoever:(

Pros

Longer breaks as per management schedule though

Cons

Work off working hours and too much unbalance of work projects and stress..

Interview is tough but definitely the best place to work

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

It was awesome time for learning new technical skills

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.

Productive and great place to work at

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.

Fun company to work

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

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 was a great experience

The overall experience was great. The team showcased the Google home for the first time In my city and everyone had a great time. I managed a team and they exceeded my overall expectations.

Management is secretive

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.

Love the work Culture

Typical Sales day with boosting product sales with a Googley Culture. The management really cares about you and want the hard workers to succeed. You have to be very sales oriented.

Worked as contractor

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.
