Google was a great place to work. I made a lot of life long friends as a result while learning new skills to propel me forward in my career. I learned process improvement, lean management, and operational efficiency.
Overall, Google is an amazing place to work. Your day-to-day can be vastly different depending on what team you're on and what your role is. The one thing that's consistent for all teams is that innovators and those with a motivated work ethic will excel, no matter where you are on the corporate ladder.
Google isn't perfect but it almost certainly comes the closest of any company with dozens of thousands of employees.
A typical day as an Eng. Mgr. is filled with meetings, most of which are actually productive and interesting. The balance is usually spent reading and responding to email or looking through artifacts created by the team you manage.
I've learned how to organize and empower people to be productive and happy engineers. Upper management can often be ignorant of how things are in the trenches but there are excellent tools for bubbling up widespread discontent so it does generally get addressed.
The hardest part of the job tends to be staying abreast of all the change happening across such a gigantic organization, since you never know when something will impact you.
The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to the great coworkers, especially over daily free lunch.
Google in New York was a decent working place with full of creative and skillful people. My manager always supported me during the difficult projects. It was great to had a lot of experience in marketing and SEO fields.
Working with extremely smart and open-minded people
it was a very productive experience for me. i got to interact with a lot of customers and employees on a very professional level. i learned a lot while using electronic devices as well to help assist us in our daily tasks.
My six-month stint at this location was workplace Heaven!...Free lunch (gourmet or ala-carte), employee lounges with games, scooter for travel in the massive office space. The number of interviews just to consult were five or six in number (for employees - something like nine to eleven interviews).
Great place to work as employee...very competitive..lots of opportunity to learn
open culture, big company with some bureaucracy, business roles usually revolve around ads, perks are great (food, massages, work space), usually only hire for functions you have experience in, internal mobility is possible around 1-2 years.
