Google is a great place to work for if you’re not working through a contracted company. They’ll lay you off quick. We were all offered compensation, but they didn’t give us a 30 day notice. We just came into work one day, pulled into meetings and told we were laid off.
Great place, friendly environment, good pay and incentives.
I was part of a team that did trouble shooting/answered questions for users of Google applications. It became repetitive after a while. Management seemed to be unclear and inconsistent with the metrics at the time which caused ambiguity. The coworkers were always great, helpful, kind, and empowering.
I was about 22. Needed a job. A cleaning company contacted me. They told me they wanted to work from them. Google was the place they wanted me to clean.
Nice and simple hours, Monday through Friday. The actually Googlers were very much nice people and rather clean people as well. They made me feel extremely welcome and even invited me to their private events after I clocked out of work.
I'd for sure work there again if I had the opportunity.
Working on the Google MDP Project was fun. My co-workers were fun and easy to get along with and the managers were capable and professional.
The work itself was easy to learn, if sometimes boring.
If given the opportunity, I would work there again.

BOLD intern program is like no other. Full feel of the work experience, lots of support from teams, many opportunities to learn about all that the company has to offer. Just make sure that you choose a team that you WANT to work on full time, not just any team.
Digital Consultant (Volt alkalmazott) - Ann Arbor, MI - 2019, március 1.
I was young when I was brought on to the digital marketing team but I wasn't given much freedom to use my abilities in the way that worked best.
They cater to a ''do what we say and it will work'' and that's not how the world of business operates. They often wanted me to ignore important questions my clients asked and they wanted me to steer the conversation in a different direction which led to confusion and dishonesty for the consumer.
I was on the pre-sales team and so I was directly dependent upon my post-sales team to accomplish the remainder of the sale which they often failed which impacted my quota and left animosity amongst my manager and myself.
The culture was fun and the employees were nice but people were naive, arrogant, and full of themselves in which I became annoyed with.
Great experience and would definitely go back if the opportunity presented itself, job culture was amazing. The management was amazing and provided all the coaching needed to succeed in the call center environment. It was very fast paced but an amazing job.
Shortly after starting at the company I was moved into a completely new department that had very little direction, structure or planning. This may have been a better match if I had been with the company for a year or two and knew how to navigate the company getter, but it was disastrous for my career at Google. Many many employees love Google for good reasons. My case was exceptional.
The best part about the company is the people you work with. Very helpful and constantly drive you to be better. When you are working among the best of the best you tend to achieve the best. Great work life balance with amazing benefits and facilities.
