Worst hiring process I have ever seen

Google is not a bad place to work if you get in; however, google has the worst hiring process of any company I have ever seen. The absolute debilitating fear of accidentally hiring the wrong person creates an environment where there is a long winded hiring black box, with almost no feedback what so ever. You might be in communication with a hiring manager one week getting ready for interviews, and the next week, you are no longer being considered, with no explanation, and having not even interviewed. Once you have made it through the notoriously difficult 4 hour back to back interviews, there begins a long mysterious process of going through hiring committees and executive reviews, where there is no feedback. This process took at least a month or more for me, with a solid month between phone and in person interviews, There was also a delay of a couple months between resume submission and any contact from Google.
Once in to Google, being awesome at your job is not quite good enough to get you promoted. You need to demonstrate being awesome at the position two levels above you, to be considered for promo.
