Google was a wonderful place to work at. A typical day consisted of reviewing on going bugs and delivering ways to fix them, as well as committing change lists to improve any systems/applications that were launched in Borg. I learned a lot on how Google executes business practices in fluid and collaborative ways without getting bogged down in paperwork. The Management Team is highly technical, they could provide feedback for challenging solutions and guidance on how to wrangle them. Google's workplace culture is collaborative but highly competitive, you always need to bring you "A" game on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was trying to manage work life, as the demands for getting projects completed on time were paramount. My fondest memories for working at Google were the SRE members in the flights team. These members were a great bunch to work with.
Excellent Compensation and Benefits. Collaborative work environment is wonderful.
Job Work / Life Balance could be better.
