Great if you enjoy complex social systems and processes. A lot of perks and flexibility. Many touch points across big teams internationally too. Suggest for anyone curious about working in a multinational corporation.
Fantastic company to work for. Obviously great salary, perks, benefits, office culture, office environment. Opportunities for hard workers/ self starters, opportunities to move between teams/ job functions. innovative and challenging colleagues.
nice perks at the office, Google bus transportation is great to have in the heavy-traffic Bay Area, the scale of the whole operation is truly impressive, Google is hiring like crazy and employees are packed-in like sardines now. sometimes you will read the news about privacy concerns and wonder to yourself about what the company is doing with user data
I can't imagine a better large company. The typical day involved arriving when you wanted with no one looking over your shoulder. You learn how to get things done without people reporting to you in a very flat organizational structure. Interpersonal skills are very important. Co-workers are helpful and smart, but also very busy with their own projects. The hardest part of the job is reaching consensus across a multitude of stakeholders. The most enjoyable part is feeling like you are doing important work and not being stressed about it.
